It was driven by Dick Guldstrand. In 1970, Paul Van Valkenburg (Author of “Race Car Engineering & Mechanics) began racing the car and winning his first race at Ontario. He then campaigned the car at various Trans Am events in Ohio, Michigan and Riverside. Since then it has raced at Riverside, Palm Springs, Ontario, Tustin and Las Vegas. In 2002, it returned to the Trans Am series by racing at the Wine Country Classic an the Monterey Historic. The car has once again been driven by Dick Guldstrand.
