James Garner is greeted by Dick Guldstrand upon arrival at the Culver City shop
The Guldstrand R&D shop was a beehive of activity in preparation for the 1968 Daytona 24 hour race
The spare "promotional" car was titled and street driven. It was to be used for spares for the #44
and #45 car. Restoration is currently under way to return the car to the state it was in this photo
Enthusiasm was high during the preparation of these cars for Daytona
James Garner with Bob Wingate. Wingate was instrumental in pulling this L88 Corvette deal together
Traco was the shop next door that prepared the motors for the 3 cars. Dave Herlinger still has one of them!
Racing tales in the making.
