        Have only recieved ONE photo of this car in the later stages with second lettering job added to my original after Al & I spent all day with “Spray cans” painting it green (really …(took 66 to do it ! )…Will dig out and post. We are hoping Wayne , His Son, who IS on the forum..has dug out all his Dad’s stuff from Florida…I’ll check on that .Wayne said he saved his First Dover trophy.
