The Cars

38 “Rock Vest”

1968 Datsun Fairlady

In January 2018 We began the campaign to reintroduce Rock’s car to those who hadn’t seen the old girl in some 25 years. What kind of shape was the car in…first stop a shakedown at Buttonwillow. Then off to the start of the VARA season, at Spring Mountain, and Willow Springs… How about 1st in class and first overall in the first 2 events.

1969 BMW 2002

The story begins in the early 80’s, Andy shows his little brother what a four wheel drift feels like, on PCH with Mike in the back of his 2002tii, the start of our Journey?

73 Col. Franklin & Dave McDowell

1968 Datsun Fairlady

In the 1960’s Col. George Franklin, a retired WWII Fighter pilot races a MGA because racing is the closest thing he can find to flying fighter planes. A new car is beginning to show promise in his division and looks quite formidable, the Datsun Roadster. In 1968, he was convinced by his friend Jim Fitzgerald to purchase a Datsun Fairlady from Macon Datsun in Georgia.

1968 Ginetta G16/001

Founded in 1958 by the four Walklett brothers in the UK, Ginetta has a long and successful history of producing hand-built road and race cars. Many are familiar with the more common G4 originally built as a road car though successfully campaigned as a sports racer with over 500 produced. Some have had the pleasure to have seen its successor, the dominating G12 of which 28 were built.
