    Great pics & write up. Obvious a great mechanic & history development of a classic.

    Too bad it had a devastating ending.

    Iknow this is trivial but I had in my mind that there was not an “s” on the word Bandits as I remember them in the early days even as they were a group….one of the photos is how I remember the Arnett family cars and like Paul’s when they teamed up with him.

    Man. To hear a 286ci flatty on straight alcohol? Sick.

    I don't know why but the fellow sitting in the car looks much more like Paul's machinist, Fred Lobello than Paul.

    "The saga came to a brutal end in 1957 when George Barcout, at the wheel, collided with a confused spectator who drove a Chevrolet onto the track..."
