Our new race car

We just bought this, and I am very excited! Beautiful 1974 RSR, built by Franz Blam Racing, and updated by John James racing.

Beautiful!
I am crazy about that particular design.

Ive always loved that vented front fender era. How about a rear 3/4 view?

Thanks! I have always loved these, too. Here are the best 3/4 rear shots I have now.

Very nice! I've seen this car a few times and shared the track with it at Cal Speedway in the past, really well put together and always drew a crowd.

Thansk guys, I just love it too! It is a lot like my old car I had 2004-2007, but a much nicer build.

I saw this car once and loved it. I really dig the polka dots. Where did that theme come from? Your new car looks the business as well. Congrats and enjoy!

Thanks Spool, I bought the polka dot car as just a roller tub from a guy in Ohio who was a Spectro oil dealer, and that was their colors at the time. I liked it so much, I decided to keep it. When I started racing it, the movie "Talladega Nights" had just been released. If you remember, Ricky Bobby drove the Wonderbread car, which looked similar. A friend taped the name Ricky Bobby on the roof when I wasn't looking!

That’s an awesome story! Put a cougar in the new car and go drive!

We will be at Road Atlanta for The Mitty, so no Cougar needed, that place is terrifying enough!

Hi Joe,
I'm super jealous! I looked kinda hard at that car. Seems like it was for sale for a while at Patrick Motorsports, then BAT, then I recently found it still listed on another broker site... Did you buy it from the BAT auction? Looks like a great car... I'm hoping to add a '74 RSR to my garage (clone, not real!) in the next few years - either buy or build, to use on the track. Good purchase!
Best,
Tom

Thanks Tom. We bid on it in the BaT auction, but did not meet reserve. We bought it from the owner thru Patrick Motorsports.

Saw it back on BaT. Did it sell after the auction?
