Mark Donohue Javelin SST 1970 Stored in Trailer for over 20 years rescued unloaded forklifted
This is a video capturing the unloading of a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST
that was stored in a trailer for over 20 years. I was a little scared
filming this as I did not want to be posting a video of the destruction of
a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST, personally I would have cut the roof off
the trailer and taken the car out with a helicopter, not to worry though as
there were 2 guys inside the trailer ready to catch the car if it fell or
tipped over ...but alas, as risky as it was, a success!!!! 2 other cars
were stored in the trailer as well, a super low mile Gremlin and I think it
was a 1979 AMX, but this was the treasure we were digging for!!!!!! On the
spoiler you will notice "401", this was originally a 390 and if I remember
right it is a Big Bad Orange, Orange or Green, it was not a bad re-paint
but the inside of the door jam reveals the original color, a nice find!!!
The car is in fantastic condition! This was not accomplished on the first
attempt, a few mis-fires happened but it all was okay in the end!

Trans Am Mustangs

Penske History 5: The Road to NASCAR
While Penske Racing is currently one of the leading NASCAR NEXTEL Cup
Series operations with drivers Ryan Newman and Kurt Busch, team owner Roger
Penske has a long heritage in NASCAR. Penske won in his only NASCAR race as
a driver, in 1963, and he also won NEXTEL Cup Series races with drivers
Mark Donohue and Bobby Allison. After leaving stock cars in 1977, Penske
Racing returned for two races in 1980, with Rusty Wallace finishing second
in his first NASCAR race. That set the foundation for Penske South and
Wallace joining NASCAR in 1991.
"The Racing Scene" 1970 James Garner F5000
A short clip that starts with a Formula A race at Lime Rock, CT in
September 1969. Due to a break down during qualifying, Scooter Patrick must
start his Surtees TS5 at the end of the pack. Enjoy!
It's the real stuff, photographed at real races, and you go racing with
James Garner . . , star of "Grand Prix." But, this time it's for real, he
owns the cars and takes you behind the scenes at Sebring, Daytona,
Limerock, St. Jovite and even some of his off road racing in Baja, Mexico
in his Bad Bronco. Some of Jim's playmates are Parnelli Jones, John
Surtees, Roger Penske, Mario Andretti, Sam Posey, Scooter Patrick, Pat
Fahey, Dick Smothers, Dave Jordan, Ed Leslie, Lothar Motschenbacher, Bob
Bondurant, Larry Berquist, Fred Baker, Dick Simon, Bill Brack, Chuck
Trowbridge, Rex Ramsey, Ronnie Bucknum, Bob Brown, Mike Hiss, Chuck
Dietrich, Robert Fischetti, Max Kelly, Peter Rehl, John Mahler, Rich
Galloway and hundreds more. You will see the real blood, sweat and tears,
like Jim said, "Why couldn't it be like "Grand Prix", when you do it for
real, it ain't like the movies!" Producer Barry Scholer and director Andy
Sidaris filmed for nine months. John Srevens devised a tiny camera the size
of a grapefruit that recorded action that will make your hair Stand on end!
Made from 16mm, the film has a few scratches, but this is one you won't
want to miss. James Garner, we can't thank you enough!
