Dudley Cunningham -- 1959 Bocar Stiletto

(1-7-12)   From Hal Scheie:

"Itís great to see this car again.

I went to college at the U of Colorado in í61-62.

I would hang out and lend a hand part time at the old Bocar factory in Denver.

I remember this car well as it was Bob Carnes personal driver and he would take it home daily.

I remember him driving it to the shop putting it on a trailer and taking it to CDR raceway for a sports car race where I was one of the pit crew 

At the time I was there it had a Potvin front mounted blower with Hilborn injection, and as I drove it a few times, it was actually pretty smooth even with the with the injection.

Bob would cut the front suspensions off Jags, and other foreign cars and graft them on the front of his custom designed space frames. I donít remember what he used on that car.

Bob was a bit of a character and when I returned from my Christmas vacation the factory had burned down under suspicious circumstances and that was the last I heard of him."
