5R532 Owner
« on: May 04, 2021, 12:05:12 PM »
Hi everyone.  I am hoping someone here could help me. 

My girlfriend's father passed away on Sunday.  He was the owner of 5R532 in the early 70s.  We have racks of 35 mm slides from him racing the car.  We haven't thought about that car for many years but with his passing and going through old photos has brought back wonderful memories from their childhood. 

He was on the cover of the June 1973 Newsletter.




We were wondering if the car is still around and what has happened to it since he owned it. 

If anyone has any info that they could share it would be greatly appreciated. 

Thanks for your time.

Dan

The registry notes the current owner in Virginia.  Best to contact the 65 registrar, Howard Pardee, who may be able to put you in contact with the owner.

I'll reach out to the current owner - we've been friends for years and I have his cell. I will not disclose any more about it as I believe in letting owners dictate how much they wish to share about what they own. He does frequent the forums here so he may speak up and provide more.

Thanks so much for the replies. 

I did receive an email from Howard and he forwarded my message along. 

I am working on getting these slides transferred over to a digital format.
