I will have to look through the old photo album to see if I have any pictures. I was they guy that did the body and paint on the Matador and also wrote the article about the long race and our team for the Midwest Council newsletter. I know I have a copy of that somewhere. I will gladly share my phone number with you but I don’t know how to do that without it going public. I used to race a 78 Porsche 924 and a 72 Opel Manta in Midwest Council.

Hey Jim, that’s awesome! thanks for stopping by. Got any pics of the car back in the day? Lynn sent me a bunch of stuff but interested in anything else that might be still around. Unfortunately I haven’t done anything with the car yet. Too many other projects ahead of it. But at least it’s indoors now. I did pick up a 401 for it though and hope to build the motor this winter.

By: Jim Novotny Wed, 07 Oct 2015 18:16:15 +0000 I was part of the team that built the Matador, there were about 8-10 of us all together pitching in. I was also one of the three drivers for the first race, the 10 hour Enduro, at Gingerman. Feel free to contact me.
