Just finishing up Peter Bryant's wonderful book Can-Am Challenger.  He led a very fascinating life as a designer and mechanic.  He designed the Shadow MK2 and MK3.  At one point, he notes that Jackie Oliver got the car up to 200 MPH only to have both front tires blow out!  YIKES!

 

Wish I had met Peter along the way.  He also designed the T122 Can-Am car.

Stephen,

No one I know of could take this on.  Perhaps a Brian Redman or Bobby Rahal - both heavily involved in vintage as you know - could steer this group towards a benefactor? 

Duncan Dayton? Rob Dyson? Don Panoz?

Hi Andrew

Take a look at the PDF in the Shadow Group.

Any ideas for a Shadow Museum Sponsor ?

Happy New Year - Stephen :-))

The Shadows were remarkable cars and the first one to compete in Can-Am really personified the 'lets see what you can bring to the table' spirit of that wide open formula.  Of course, it was not the one that would go on to win but it sure did look unique.

Here is a shot of Jackie Oliver at Watkins Glen, from the ash archives.

I had the luck to work next door to Trevor Harris' shop in the late 70's. Designer of the original Shadow. A very ahead of his time guy. Saw all the Shadow Can-Am cars run at Riverside International in the past, now enjoy them at Vintage races.
