#44: 1968 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Competition Convertible. James Garner's
American International Racing (AIR) team. Driven by: Dick Guldstrand/Ed
Leslie. The history of the three James Garner/American International Racing
(AIR) cars is unique in automotive history. James Garners AIR team
sponsored three cars under one banner. The three cars were all-new L88s.
This video was taken at 2008 Bonhams and Butterfields auction: Quail Lodge,
A Sale of Exceptional Motorcars and Automobilia, at the Quail Lodge Resort
and Golf Club in Carmel, California on August 15th, 2008. Dick Guldstrand
personally introduced the car at auction.
1967 GTX Survivor vs Corvette
Unrestored 1967 440 GTX drag racing for the first time in 38 years. This
1967 440 4 speed Plymouth GTX was stored in a warehouse in 1973. I
purchased it in 1998 and was the first person to drive it on the road since
'73. I put it in a shed awaiting restoration 9 years ago. On the day this
video was taken (October 30, 2011) it literally had dirt dauber nests and
cob webs still in the engine compartment.
