As I've gotten a few messages about the Vitesse.....here is a little
stuff........ Built by my company Kastner Brophy Racing in 1971. Factory
sent me a stock Vitesse and we then did the build for the then Trans-am
racing. Engine was a 2 litre "6" making about 210 HP ( real) and the car was
painted vivid candy apple red and chrome yellow stripes because it was so
ugly we couldn't stand it. My soon to be wife but then timing a scoring lady
named it " the Candy Box". IT WAS FAST. Another car simular built later on
by a fellow named Mike Rockett was very well done and raced with success.
That car was green. I raced the car only a few times then sent it on its
way to the great race track in some else's yard.
