Another restored vintage vee out of Grand Rapids

Postby Rickydel » January 25th, 2010, 1:39 pm

Some of you may remember this Auto D advertised for sale last year. It's been recently finished (by Bob Shedd) and is beautiful. (it was kind of brown)

This Bobsy hit the track late last season after years of sitting. We're still growing.

PS I'm told not all can see the pics. (I can) If you want to see them and can't on this site, right click the photo icon, open properties and copy the URL to your brower.
That should work.

Boy that Bobsy was ahead of it's time. That a Vega built in 1966, It was my first car and we have it in the process of restoration.

Yes very much so, and for a vee of that era to actually look good too! I don't recall ever seeing a Vega race?

I now have a Zink I'm begining to restore, if any one is looking, it can be done your way.

Ricky,
I had to copy and paste to see the pic, but was there a mix up of the pictures? The blue car I'm looking at is an Autodynamics Series V, very nicely done I might ad.

Nevermind! I didn't realize there were two images. I have also not seen a Bobsy like that one. Beautiful job.

If you go to the Datona Museum sometime, there's a picture displayed that was taken on pregrid for the old USRRC and on the pole is a Vega.

Glenn "Sully" Sullivan raced the Vega in the picture below at Daytona in 1969.
