    Can't say for sure but it sure does looks like it. Don't know the drivers but the #7 car sure looks like the Johnny Vance machine.

    This is what happens when you let the owner of the dealership borrow a race car. Pete Reynolds took the car over to Hooker Headers in Pomona to negotiate a distributorship from them. On the way back, it had unexpectedly begun to rain and the GS still had its racing slicks on (and 4:44 gears). It rolled onto its roof as Pete attempted to exit I-10 at Holt Avenue. Except for damage to his shoulder and his pride, Pete took the impact remarkably well. The Gran Sport was less fortunate, and a replacement car had to be located.

    They located a car in two days from another dealer. The engine was transplanted from the #1 car into the new #2 car, which was hurriedly prepared for racing. With Jim Bell's tuning mods, the car ran 12.30 at 111 mph in NHRA stock trim. This car enjoyed a long career with many wins and helped establish the reputation of the Gran Sport as a muscle car to be reckoned with.

    In the Fifties, a Dutchman called Maus Gatsonides, took a Mercury chassis and stiffened it and a Mercury engine which he gave more power. He designed a swoopy body and fitted it.
    He called the car Kwik, that is Dutch for the element Mercury.
    And he raced the car hard! At Zandvoort (the Dutch GP-circuit) and rallies. With success!

    Develloping his cars (he made more) and racing cost him a lot of money. No problem, he earned enough designing, producing and selling radar speedtraps.
