from his northern California SCCA racing career.
|"My ex-Dan-san Abbot Elva Mk III at
Salt Lake City 1962..."
||"...replaced by a much quicker Elva

Bar- neson, Dickey, ??, myself, two more, and Walt

Myself, Ted Conrad, Atkinson, Gary Beitel, ???."
|"... and then came the day at Laguna
Seca, Fall 1962 when Merle Brennan's
D Jag-Chevy couldn't keep its rear sheetmetal from threatening to de- capitate
yerstruly and I couldn't quite stay ahead of him for a full lap, and John
Timanus (#323) was stuck watching the whole show. Baaaaad
"My feeling at the time was that Merle
should have been black-flagged because the car was a hazard to navigation,
and indeed I was waving madly at the starter (can't remember if it was
Dick or Don Seike) and making a throat-cutting motion across my neck while
pointing at the flapping bodywork, but with no effect. So I thought
it was a bad call on the part of the officials, at least. "

8: Myself and... I wish I could think of his name.
He was a photographer who'd bought
Herda's car from the previous year."
