It lists 13 different classes of cars in the drop down menu on the page titled "THE RALLY CARS".

Yes, but that is no reason to complain about the content of the list, which very clearly states what it is and appears to be accurate and comprehensive.

Adrian
Why are you arguing so vigorously. I said it didn't list Saab 99 or 96 in Group A and mentioned that I was in a real WRC with my 96 rebuilt to Group A spec. Bertil Johansson who I bought my gearbox from had entered Swedish WRC in 1985, also in GrA, and English guy was in RAC in 1986--hoping to be the last 96 in WRC history but Olympus was added to the end of the calender in December so that title went to me---it even made the newspapers in Sweden:


And even had the start number which shows what the answer to all of life's big questions of life, the universe and everything is.

As you can see the other "unknown Swede" (that's what the headline says: "Unknown "Swedes" in the WRC" was Göran Östlund, born in Sweden but here in Seattle since he was 10 and you see him in his Group A Saab 99, the same car as he went on to win SCCA Group 2 National Championship 8 years later--with an engine full of parts from me...And that same car lives on in the hands of the nephew of the mechanic who put it together named Sean Tennis---current owner being Nate Tennis

So no Saab 96 in Group A and no 99 either---what elese is missing?
Thus it is not accurate...
why argue?

Who cares?

http://www.ewrc-results.com/startlist.php?e=8675&t=Olympus-Rally-1986

May not be totally accurate? I serviced in 86 for Qvale I think. Did you enter the FIA event or the SCCA event?

The 87 results seem accurate http://www.ewrc-results.com/final.php?e=8913&t=Olympus-Rally-1987 as they show my entry and finish .
I entered 1986.
You did too.
You were in a Fiesta (WAIT!!! :eek:that's where you get your rant that Fiesta is the Next big Thing that will Save rally in America! HA! the truth comes out! HA!)
SS1 got lost in the maze and still crushed you with a 3:13 versus the lowly 3:24 for you.
SS2 summit Lake Saab surged ahead annihilating the Fiesta with a 6:12 to 7:13


And SS3 Mason Lake crushed that Ford so bad you went home, depressed, defeated, dejected, DNFed (actually a crap rebuilt alternator crapped out, it was new new new rebuilt but it puked)

(Next stage I stopped before at some hole in the wall gas stattion and got gas and immediately began having fuel line blockage--new filters before the event but Buuuuuuuu--uuuh uh, (duh) panic in the dark.. Same thing next morning on Porter Creek----stopped ON the flying finish---pumps working no fuel GRRrrrrrrrrrr

I believe Qvale was in the 85 event, don't know , he was very "serious", I was just having fun, so he didn't like me much.
Especially after I burst out laughing once when he was explaining "The ONLY way top get cylinders bore accurately was to throw the block on a pallet and send it back to Chrysler and have them bore it on original machines in a temperature controlled conditions, but it's THE ONLY WAY TO BE CERTAIN!!! It'll cost $850 but it's worth every penny!!!!"

Yeah right.
I shouldn't point and laugh I guess.:rolleyes:

EDIT no mention of any SAAB, not the mighty Saab 96 I was in, not the 99 that Östlund was flogging real well, not Rick Beesons turbo 99 that we were both stomping into a bloody, twitching quivering lifeless pulp.

I think they don't like Saabs!

Because it didn't happen. No Fiesta, no bad parts, no stock suspension because the lying bastard in England didn't air freight the parts for two cars. If'n it ain't on the internet nit didn't happen. Now I gotta go have a drink to forget the Fester again..thanks.

OK I'll scan the entry list and post it... It was hilarious that I was fairly close to some of Grant Whitngs times---which no way happened when we were in our normal cars...
Then it will be on the Internet and like some Sci-Fi thing I post it, the fabric of time ripples and suddenly history changes!
Whoa doooood, that's faaaaaar out..

(pssssst whaddya gonna bribe me to not post the entry list and SS1 and SS2?)

Can you all stop trying to prove JVL is wrong so we can get back to what was a fun thread on random old rally cars? :)

Yeah, that list is not complete. My Opel Ascona (driven by Martin Kaspers) is not on the list. As it says: "total entries 50 (32 on list)"

I think Gene paid to have his Fiasco removed from the list.

The Jeep Wagoneers of early days, there was a guy who showed up once in a Scout and rolled on the first corner of the first stage. In '83 on my first Olympus was a full size Blazer , seems like a hubby/wife deal and I think they hit a hole so hard the starter broke off the engine (my memory isn't perfect so trust JV or Dave Clark if they say different).

The worst was the diesel Peugeots. Black as sin smoke for a week at the start of a stage. Gary Eaton??

Another SAAB to be not forgotten was Satch's Sonnet and I remember at least one SAAB that had the exhaust run up the windshield pillar and onto the roof.

iirc, Gary & Carolyn Eaton's Pugs were not diesels.

Several of the 96s back in the day had over the roof exhausts - ala the Safari cars.

So was there a diesel Pug? I just remember an uphill start out of Shelton and so frickin much black smoke. Same uphill start was the first time I was close enough in line to see Chad DiMarco take off in the Legacy...instant momentum.

Gene I used to live in a Pug 404 Diesel....here March 1977 in Sweden setting off to the SW corner of France to Fontcouverte, 1400 miles away to my first International with the mighty XUD 1735cc


I can hear Pug diesels 5 miles away in my sleep...

I remember Eaton's car, and no memory of the diesel purr that so sooths my soul...

A little note: the XUD1735 or whatever the diesel foutre is called...That was the basis of the motors in those Group B 205s..Right size and stronger than hell.
Nauturally it was 16v and purdy and all but dimensionally it began as a might pug diesel..

(Helps to speak and read French to get the juicy essence of things from France..Gawd you should see their forums where they'll have 250 page threads on one model car in their Historic section...Maniacs. Fanatics. I lurv 'em)

What would happen if guys who stumble on to some fan site were unable to argue with people that actually were at places and built things in the time period referred to?
The whole Internet would collapse.
Guys who have never seen, built done stuff arguing with people who have is the entire point of the Inter-net and fan-boy sites like this..
That and obscure dumb shit like Rolls Royces on grass ..Oh yeah that's "real interesting":rolleyes:

T there was a guy who showed up once in a Scout and rolled on the first corner of the first stage. .
First ever Doo *** rallysprint, 1988. Guy by the name of Randy Johnson (no, not the Big Unit.) His first ever event and he starts out trash talking and saying he's gonna kick all our asses with his big Scout. First stage goes balls to the walls off the start and less than 100 yards down the road goes off the first corner and rolls, literally within sight of the start. Never heard from him again.

Memory is a bit fuzzy, but I'm pretty sure this one was a 505 Turbo Diesel circa 1983 or 84. I think it later got replaced or supplemented by a gas engined 505. I can remember there being two 505's on the team and one of them having a single yellow headlight so you could ID which car was which at night.


Snapshots of the 505 TD from the 1982 100AW - not sure where took the second picture - thought it was STPR in 82 or 83, but the results from rallyracingnews.com don't list that car # for them. Maybe Michigan International or Budweiser Forest?
