I thought everyone knew white cars (and handles) result in the fastest cars. I can remember the awesum paint job of white front fading into a white middle and finishing with a fade to white in the rear. First TCS National (1996) I attended the GT-1 winner used that paint scheme. The son he never had is also famous for that paint scheme......

The Aliso Viejo memories are the most vivid. See ya all in June.
