Im trying to find out when the last time someone won the 1000 over-all with an aircooled VW motor. I know it was some time in the late 80's but I cant remember whom or when.

Doing research for a friend.

Depends on if McMillins Porsches were water cooled or not. If air cooled then Mark McMillin in 1988. If not then Richardson and Sourapas in 1985. Heres what I found:

1988 Mark McMILLIN (Chenowth Porsche)
1987 Bob GORDON / Malcolm SMITH (Chenowth Porsche)
1986 Mark McMILLIN / Ralph PAXTON (Chenowth Porsche)
1985 Dave RICHARDSON / Steve SOURAPAS (Raceco VW)

Where did you get your info from, Motorsports Etc? You may want to let them know Paul and Dave Simon won in 1992 driving an F-150.

1,000 miles to glory lists Gordon winning in 1990 driving a Chenowth equipped with a Type 4 VW motor. Thanks, but I'll stick with Marty Fiolka.
