NorCal SAAC event, 5R098 the #98 ESSEX Wire Car

This is another post I'll attempt to re-create after it was lost in the crash of SAAC Forum 1.0

As most of you guys know this was the car previously purchased, restored and raced by Rick Kopec after he (if I remember correctly) Rick was tipped off that this car was in Canada in the early 80's. I'm sure he or someone can fill in the blanks. Anyway, Rick vintage raced it since the late 80's. Rick Kopec ended up selling it to Marty Beaulieu.

At the time when I photographed 5R098 (Nov 2012), it was in the building of one of our NorCal SAAC meeting events, I was VP of NorCal at the time. Marty B was attending as was Drew Serb who brought CSX3022 (I'll post CSX3022 separately). Marty opened up 5R098 for everyone to take a peek.

Enjoy the pics.

Cheers,

The second image is the passenger side inner fender. I thought that was interesting if you know what I'm talking about.

Someone on the forum asked recently requesting the seeing mounting tabs for the R model radiator. There you are.
