RE: Reno 1981

I don't seem to have any action photos of the Volvo, at least not from that event. I do have action of several other machines from that rally, however.

Next little quiz: Who are these people, particularly the guy in the middle? The rally is Reno International 1981. Extra credit for any details on the car.

RE: Reno 1981

- Either is was a Diesel, indeed, or a regular gas 505
- Gary's wife was navigating to 2nd in P class (I'm cheating - I got the results...)
- Gary Eaton was very nice to us "poor" rallyists; He always sold near new Michelins for $ 20-40/each!!

RE: Reno 1981

It WAS Gary and Carolyn Eaton in a Production class Peugeot TURBO Diesel. They were always competitive in P class, even won a few events.

Jimmy Brandt is doing what Jimmy does well, getting stage times from his competitors.

RE: Reno 1981

The folks at the Rainier Auto Sports Club have posted photos from the Nor-Wester 1981-1982-1983 years:
