    Nope that was Carol Shelby that was in California.

    Actually I am absolutely wrong, Smokey's shop was in Florida. Sorry about that. All these years I thought that his shop was in Texas. I'll delete my post as being OT and bow out now.

    Bobby's daughter is my neighbor and his son is still running "Motor Rico". I asked him about this car and he said it first ran a flathead, then a SBC, and onto a 392 Hemi. You can guess what my next question was - he said it was long gone.
