The great John "The Jet" Cukras and former Team Riggen star Bryan Warmack...
...met for the first time since 1970 at the 2000 Proxy run at the Marconi Museum in Tustin, CA. Bryan entered a modified FLY porsche 917 which finished 2nd in the E-Class "B" Main. John was our star driver and acquitted himself quite well of this tough assignment.
Mark Gussin' "Hussein I" proved once and for all to naysayers that vacuum-formed bodies can make Concours winners. It all depends on whom does the job.
