I corresponded with Steve S about the "Love Bug Alpine", he didn't have much West coast Race info, at the time.
BTW, Plan A for the LA Shelby event is shaping up!.
I ended up changing heads (BOOO!)
The BIG valve head had issues with the water passage around the spark plug.
Turns out there was/is a pin hole into the spark plug THREADS (BOOOOO!).
So now I get to do a test of a STOCK head compared to a BIG valve head, ...eventually.
Also, Steve Alcala gets 99% of the credit for getting the "Weekend Racer" Alpine in a drive-able (Race-able?) state!
Steve A will be Driving the "Weekend Racer" Alpine on this RETURN TO WILLOW event.
John Coddington drove the WR Alpine at an SCCA drivers school at Willow back in 1967.
And NO!, I could not live with that front fender Mirror position!!!
It has been moved to a SANE position.
