|Old Yeller II Today --
Dr. Ernie Nagamatsu sent some interesting
photos & info about his car.
|Dr. Ernie Nagamatsu in Old Yeller II
leads a mixed bag of sports/racers at the "Festival
of Speed" held at Goodwood in 2004. I can't identify the mid-1960s
car directly behind OY II, but the third car is easy: It's a Cunningham
C4R. Behind the Cunningham is one of our "Mystery cars" from
this website: The Rolls-Royce
powered "Marina". Then we see a D-Type Jaguar in Cunningham
livery. Behind the Jaguar is a Ferrari 250GT California.
Off the course (I think) is a lightweight E-Type Jaguar racer.
|From Bruce Dabney: "The car behind
OYII at Goodwood looks like a Genie MK8 -- I recognize the paint job, I
think it might be one that as of a year or 2 ago, belonged to Bill Hair
From Don Blair: The photo
of Ernie Nagamatsu in OYII at Goodwood 2004 shows it in front of a unidentified
blue and white car which is a 1963 (Huffaker-built) Genie- Chevrolet, see
photo from "motorsport.com".

Photographers should be ready to move
fast if necessary. What's with these guys?
OYII has recently undergone significant
suspension upgrades and will soon return to its status, according to Dan
Gurney in 1960, as: "The best handling car I've ever driven."
