Well, the original Cooper shell was toast, so Rod’s racing buddies
found him a donor car- a ’67 Cooper S – and the painstaking process began again.
This time around, there’s more emphasis on “go” than “show”, so Rod put a mere 720 man-hours into it, and, well, we won’t say how much cash. Running under the same number, #130 – now in a more angelic Old English White – makes its race debut on March 6-7 at the HSR West vintage races at Willow Springs. Go get ’em, Rod!
p.s. – Rod, don’t forget that old racer’s mantra: “Remember, keep the ‘shiny’ side up, and the ‘greasy’ side down.”
