hmm..the pits do look a little like OP, but right at the end of that clip of the car on the track, he goes around a corner with a big grassy bank to the left, not sure OP had that feature?
Lakeside?, Surfers? did the car ever run there?
I guess with Holden being Melbourne centric, you'd guess a Vic track?

Hi folks, I dont believe it raced at Oran Park. He also upgraded cars each year and I belive bought the ex-bob jane car for Bathurst 1973 which is now in the Museum their. This was the 72-73 car.

Phil, talk about 6 degrees of separation, you refer to Deane Hill owning the Stoopman car, Deane also owned the Noel Devine Pest Control car that I own after Noel, so it appears Deane owned a few of these old Bangers......
It is a small world.
