Edwin Sanborn Buys car -
He had in his mind is was a Ginther Car. He doesn’t know why specifically.
-He purchased the car in ’74 or ’75. Plate was PDQ14
-First log book entry relating to ED is the ‘Driving School’ ones as he was obtaining his licence.
-First year of racing car was still silver (and he bought it from Webb as a converted race-car with windscreen/roll bar etc)
-A man called Paul Tossi (spelling) worked on the car in Meaney’s shop. Car painted Alaska Metallic Blue. Ralph Meaney then moved to Seattle area.
-Roll bar was REDONE (so pointless trying to identify the car in 1970/71 by its current roll-bar which I was doing).
-He raced the car against Paul Newman in a Datsun 510! (V cool!)
