|(8-30-08) Update from From Bob Engberg:
"The Tannhauser Elva was a MK I and the Treischmann Elva was a different
MK II than mine. I've connected with the Treischmann family
and learned some facts, and met Chuck Rahn at Monterey who told me that
he bought the car from Treischmann, painted it yellow and finally sold
it to Woodnorth Motors.
I believe now that Frank Campbell of Hinsdale, IL, raced my
car at Road America in 1958-69. (PHOTO)
I suspect he was not the first owner, however, since there is evidence
on my car's original body that it started life as an Elva MK II and was
modified to be a IIb or III. So, the hunt goes on. I'd like to hear from
anyone who knew Campbell or his family."
(7-1-09) Update from Bob Engberg:
"In 1958 and '59 the car was kept at a small gas station at 16th
and Ridgeland Ave. in Berwyn, IL. The car was "definitely red in '58-59".
The mechanics on the car were Tom Peacock, Fred Turek and Tom Lusty, then
17 years old. Tom has contacted me. I'd like to hear from, or about the
other two mechanics."
