I’ve got some vintage fiberglass from a VORRA car if anyone needs it for a project. 189CE6DD-AFFF-41DF-BBA5-30641D3D939E.jpeg12E966EA-1A55-45CB-856E-208BDEF6176F.jpeg59B0246C-EEE8-4877-9F97-3B5B097DA6BD.jpegEAF4D707-5F33-4A9E-9734-6F6FB12EF494.jpeg6C8E713F-58B2-454B-9840-8BA5DD311462.jpeg3A094272-46CA-4403-A5EC-D4AEA8DA3D3A.jpeg189CE6DD-AFFF-41DF-BBA5-30641D3D939E.jpeg9AE1EFE4-2E8C-44E3-A1C4-9DF5A913DDB9.jpeg12E966EA-1A55-45CB-856E-208BDEF6176F.jpeg59B0246C-EEE8-4877-9F97-3B5B097DA6BD.jpegEAF4D707-5F33-4A9E-9734-6F6FB12EF494.jpeg6C8E713F-58B2-454B-9840-8BA5DD311462.jpeg3A094272-46CA-4403-A5EC-D4AEA8DA3D3A.jpeg189CE6DD-AFFF-41DF-BBA5-30641D3D939E.jpeg9AE1EFE4-2E8C-44E3-A1C4-9DF5A913DDB9.jpeg

!983- See the Frontier 500 sticker? That race had only been run a couple times by then. The glass is from a later model funco SS2 single seater. The color says Blue Max so I figured it was one of Dennis's cars, but I guess Bishop could have had it. I thought he had a 2 seat car around then though.

Pretty sure Mike Bishop raced it at the Frontier 500. We watched the first few years of it come through near Weeks, Nevada . Mike had a 2 seat class 9 car after the Funco, which was just a copy of a Funco. The side panels are chopper gun glass and have been lengthened in the front. Almost look like High Jumper.

Well, I think the 9 car was actually a Chenowth. I raced at Hollister and they were racing a 2 seat Chenowth and won class 9 the year they held a race there.

I might have helped you load that body. I worked for Mike Bishop from 83-89, then on an off for a couple more years. That was a stretched Funco. I think a Mike lowered the fuel cell and had to stretch it for legroom.
