With the newest acquisition looks like your going to need help getting these cars back in operation. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/assimilate.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smash.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/welder.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Steven Behr, Fort Lee NJ ! 1970
I was twenty years old.
I grew up in the next town to Fort Lee
There was a 427 Cobra in Ft lee at the time. Owned by Clem Hoppe
Never heard of Steven Behr or a 914 6
At the time I had a Beetle.....I think.
Plenty of 'future' famous names in that roster.

Thank you Glen
You keep things interesting.

Boy does this thread bring back memories. I just saw this thread and the car posted in #106, the yellow #54, was a car that I knew very well. I bought that car from Dave White, prepped it for the Daytona 24 in 1976 and co-drove with Hal Sahlman and Alex Job. I was working at the Porsche dealer in West Palm then and we put the whole deal together in a two month time frame. We ran Goodyear street tires and ran the entire race on one set. That's a story in itself.
Then comes along post #107 that shows the Altman 914-6. That picture is from the the last year of the Columbus 500 in Ohio. Mark & Gary co-drove my 914-6 at Elkhart Lake and I co-drove with them in their 911 in the last 6 hour makes race at Watkins Glen. That 914 was a full tube frame car that they built from a set of plans (drawings) that they obtained. They had major teething problems with the car. I don't know whatever happened to that car. Their 911 went to Jay Kojeller in Toledo.
Great memories.

@9146GUY is none other than Steve Southard. He has been racing for a while now and most interesting to this crowd he campaigned a 914/6 for many years in IMSA.
Steve also owned and raced one of the original 6 Ginther Roadsters.
I picked up some parts from Steve last year and ended up talking with him for hours!

Glenn, thanks for this thread, always educational. On another note, are we going to see your face again at Phoenix Club show and swap in a couple of weeks?

You asked if about the yellow van....Nope

As for the spin I don't know who was driving at the time but I can tell you about a joke we were having during the race. There were several cars that Goodyear supplied street radial tires for us to run the race on. Our car was the only one that hadn't changed tires when the rain started. One of our drivers, Hal Sahlman, came from off shore power boat racing. So I made a comment to him that he would be the driver during the rain because he was the one with all the experience on top of water. Not saying it was him driving at the time but.......
BTW we finished the race on the original set of tires we started on. Try that today.
