I've no idea Rob, but has anyone got any history on it? I've never seen it in any old pictures, only in magazines from the last few (10-12!) years, first one being in Volksworld at a VW Classic in the mid-late '90's. Smiley

Talked with my dad to see what he remembered about this car it was built in the early 70s and only raced until 75/76
this car replaced a meyers manx they ran inthe late 60s called BossFrog when the sedan was ready they stripped the
drivetrain,running gear,and race parts (the guts)from the frog ,hence the name
The car was built in Hanford CA by the owner of j&t motors the car was raced mostly in Bakersfield/Fomosa
and also in Fresno and Raisin City.He remembers the best time 11.26 at 118MPH
the car was  sold after several years of storage by the original owner in 1986
