Smiskol never had a Pacesetter Z. The only one to come to the Chicago area was bought by Larry Johnson who totaled it while running lead car on a local TSD and lost his life in the accident.

It is correct that John had a 510, I believe a 71 2-door and as best as I can remember, he and Carol, after they were married bought a brand new 260Z and immediately stripped it, acid dipped it, etc as he turned it into a rally car. The first event for the car was the 1974 Rideau Lakes where I crewed for him and then POR. Don't know what became of the car but, I am relatevely sure John never owned one of Bob Henderson's Pacesetter Z's. After the Z Car, John bought one of JB's TR's and rallied it for awhile until he stopped Performance Rallies.
