History My dad bought this car brand new in 1973. He took it to a BMW HPDE in 1974 at Mosport and had fastest lap, and fastest average lap. He competed in local autocross and had a coupe of third place finishes.

In the 90's the Kugelfischer mechanical fuel injection was swapped for dual webber 40's. In 2012 the engine overheated and had a ring failure, and I inherited the car. The engine was rebuilt top and bottom, and cooling system, and just about everything else mechanical was replaced or refreshed. Suspension was upgraded with an Ireland Engineering performance street" setup.

In 2013 and 2004 I took it to a BMW HPDE. I passed the likes of a new corvette Stingray, Dodge Challenger R/T, and various modern BMW's. I took it to my first autocross and finished mid pack to modern cars. I was 0.01 seconds behind a 2012 wrx STI.
