Late to the party on this one.. but was reading the early pages.. Was this "Ray (?) Hendricks" and "Bruce Jankowitz" driven car? The VCI and Euro-tire stickers speak of North Jersey and I recall both those guys as NNJR-PCA members.

Neat to see its still out being enjoyed!

Dave,
There were three IMSA 914/6s that were campaigned by NNJR-PCA members
Ray Hendricks silver car which was one of Ralph Meaney old racecar from 1971. (I now own)
Bruce Jones blue car which was Fred Apgarā€™s Apcar (now in FL)
Doug Arnaos car built from the Fiero tube frame plans (now in CA)
Did you work on these cars?


I did not work on the cars. In fact, I was about 13 when Doug built his Fiero/914 in what was the garage of my Great Grandfathers old house! For years Doug ran a 914, modded over the years in PCA DE's and then went SCCA to go racing. He used that car for a while and iirc, it was wrecked and he then built the Fiero/914 car to race. I recall he was a top 10 (top 5?) on Porsche's cup contingency for drivers who raced Porsche's one year which seemed like a really big deal to someone not running a 962 at the time! Didn't realize that car was still around.

I recall the Apgar name as well over the years. I know he built some motors of some other PCA guys and also "went racing" but I don't recall seeing his car.

I don't really remember Hendricks, although I am sure my father would. I recall Bruce Jankowitz cause him, Arnao and a few others (Keith Peare) were all good buddies in the early 1980s and all "went racing" after learning the basics with NNJR PCA DE program. Keith was a lot of run to watch race/run his GT3 class 914 at PCA events. Love his videos online from the Glen, Mid Ohio and Lime Rock.

thanks for the neat trip down memory lane.

Fred lives about a half hour away from me. He told me he and Bob Russo both worked on 934's on different teams. I'll have to ask him about his 914 days.

Cool pic. Is that flyer86d (Charlie) second from right behind the car?

If you're talking about the picture I posted, from the right it is Roy, Ed and I think Larry is leaning in the car. I worked with those three and one of the drivers at the time.
I was the one who took the picture at Pocono 84.

Racing season has begun, unfortunately you could not tell it was spring by the weather. I was instructing at the school last Saturday and it snowed all day.
I was impressed with the students who went out in the slush and stayed out there to earn their race license!

I also learned a trick! if your windshield is fogging up on the inside spread shaving cream on it. Then wiper the shaving cream off leaving a thin film...it worked like a charm.

Looks like the ol' "Dynamic Air Conditioning" was working a charm that day! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lol-2.gif)

This is the Midwest, you have to learn to drive in the snow... There were 20 students!
I used rain tires, I didn't have snows

Looks like a track sized skid pad! I use a cloth misted lightly with ArmorAll to reduce potential fog problems on the interior windshield. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif)
