About Me:
Owner of a small company that builds vintage racing Datsuns and creates parts for same as well as restoration of early classic Datsun automobiles. I very much enjoy tracing the history of some of our famous race cars and searching for other famous cars. We also do track support for our customers vintage race Datsuns. I am also a graduate of the Bondurant School of Driving and am proud to say that I got my start in vintage racing because of Bob and his early relationship with Datsun. I built the 2 early Datsuns in the museum at the school which are some of the cars Bob started the school with in 1968 when he was recovering from his accident at Watkins Glen.
What car(s) do you own?
I presently own a 1967 Datsun 2000 race car that finished 2nd at the ARRC race in 1969 at Daytona in DProd as well as one of the factoryworks Rallye Datsun 510s that Peter Brock drove to a 4th place finish at the 1970 Mexican/Baja 1000 I also have a historic vintage racing Datsun 510 and 1200/Sunny as well as various street cars.
What do you like to do (e.g. vintage race with...)?
We presently vintage race with HSR-West and like to attend certain other races from time to time and have traveled to England and Japan for both racing and aviation related events. We also participate in scenic rallyes in the Cal area as well helping run the Vintage Sedan Racers Group where we have re-started the under 2.5 TransAm for vintage sedans
What clubs do you belong to?
HSR-West
and
www.VSRG.org which is our vintage sedan racing group.
What would you like to do (e.g. go to race school; get into Vintage Racing)?
Eventually be able to vintage race some of the rare cars we have at all the well known tracks across the US. Also hopefully travel to Austrailia to see the V-8 supercars race as that looks to be the best racing I have seen anywhere.
