6./early - Bob Dritz, Chicago, IL, USA  

"The car was sold to me in the early 60's by bill of sale (no title) by the wife of the then-current owner who had just died in a race (possibly Jim Place, the name sounds familiar).

Note from the Editor
Not James Place he still raced in 1972 various open race cars like Lotus and Lola

The car was in sad shape at the time, (just a shell of oxidized aluminum and tubular frame) so I relocated it from the South Side of Chicago to a garage on the North Side where it languished for several more years, until late in 1968.

Soon-to-be-married, and strapped for cash, I sold it to a group of enthusiasts from Wisconsin who trailered it home on a flatbed with the hopes of restoration. I had hoped that they would contact me with updates but, alas, they never did." 

(Bob Dritz as per e-mail from 8th December, 2000)
