Yep, Dan and his BME Cougar shod with the Magstars, as all the Cougars (three of them) were at Sebring.

If memory serves me right, this particular Tiger was well prepared by Doane Spencer's crew at Hollywood Sports Cars.

That Tiger is still around. A friend of mine owns the 55 Tiger and he restored it a few years ago.

yes, and quite a few "tricks" involved from what I've read and seen. That car and driver combination was quite successful.
