I stopped and visited with Tony and Peanut today. They know the car you are looking for, but they needed some time to look for the picture. One photo that they did produce was the Vicky bodied modified with some interesting aerodynamics. The car was quickly percieved to be illegal by the CARC Officials, and Tony was told to remove the air displacers. It is truly one of the most interesting cars from that era. I do not remember seeing it, but I do remember all the hoopla about it. The photo was taken by Stahr Photography, in the northeast corner of Colorados Lakeside Speedway.

Donnie,

My first Lakeside car was Tony's car from 1975. It is a Ford frame 2 springer with a Pinto body. Tony painted it blue and it was #60.

Hope this helps, Jeff

Tony is very special to me, after my accident in Gering Neb. racing with ERA, Tony made me get back into the car that I was driving and that I had sold to Wayne Swanson, if not for that I may have never raced again, I owe my racing career to Tony and I thank him for that and he will always have a special place in my heart.
