This was the 2nd BT-29 built originally for Fred Ashplant, through Fred Opert, car did not arrive till August
and Ashplant had already purchased a Chevron. Bob May took delivery, car was Black with Silver stripe. In
1971 the car was sold to Tom Scott who was killed in the car at Daytona. The remains were sold to Carl Whitney
who purchased remains of a car crashed by Al Lader and a incomplete car from Opert missing a chassis tag.
Whitney built up a car from the three and raced with a SCA Cosworth in Formula Continental. The remains of
the Bob May and Al Lader car's were sold to Ken Duclose, who was also racing a BT-29. He robbed pieces and
cut pieces as needed to keep his car racing. Marty Handsmy purchased remains of May and Laders car's. The present owner
