Ok now that I've kinda got this picture thingy worked out...lets get the ball rolling again � Grin

This is from Sunset in '68 or '69. From what I understand this car, a '57 Pontiac called the Pony Express, with a 302 Z in it I think, was a track champ one of those years.



This is Sunset in '72 or '73 a '64 Corvair in the 6 cylinder class. Love that "soft wall" they had then � �� Roll Eyes



Here is a diecast I made of the same car � Grin






Here's another shot of John Mason's #260 from Barrie in 1970.



I hear what you are saying on the geneaology of the #60 but that half-windshield and rear view mirror on the side and the angle and way the door bar sticks out at the back  are all pretty similar. At least could explain why I thought they were the same car back then in addition to the number/paint scheme.

Statsman does have nice photos but the first three are mine from when I posted them last year. I just figured out how to make them bigger and clearer. The last one Statman added from a Barrie program I believe.

Statsman, I sent an email off to my Uncle about the 260. We'll see what he says.
If you notice the first pic the car is also #260 and sponsored by Crown Hill Sunoco so there may be a link there. I know when the #60 Corvair was being raced my Uncle worked at an ESSO on Gasoline Alley so the Sunoco sponsorship probably wouldn't have been a good idea especially since the car was parked at the ESSO station.

Statsman it appears that yet again we are not worthy and must bow in your presence Grin
I emailed the pictures of the 260 and it appears that you are correct in your recollections. When I know more about the chronology I will post more or PM you.
