We've taken it as far as it can go until some big pieces come in- no use backtracking.
A lot of what we learned with the Eagle is going into the Elden build, which I'm sure will help it in many ways. Most of all: safety and ease of use.
You meet the nicest people at the track, especially when they share the same niche interests.
I'm always looking for photos of Pete Lovely to put in an album in the Thames, and @sjautomobilia came through with this stellar shot of Pete at the April 20, 1969 Continental Grand Prix at Riverside, where he drove his trusty Lotus 49B [s/n R11] - Cosworth DFV.
John Cannon's All American Racers Eagle Mk5 [s/n 509] won that day while Lovely paced himself to a fine sixth-place finish, two laps behind the Canadian.
Many thanks Sean!
Hagerty's Cameron Neveu introduced himself a few weeks ago at Amelia Island. He then proceeded to startle my inbox this morning with this amazing shot from last year's Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion at Laguna Seca.
If not for the Rolex signage, you'd think the Eagle DGF and I were in the hills west of Madrid, Spain.
Stellar work from an amazing photographer.

Paul and Mikey did a superb job getting the front porch of Michael Argetsinger's former Elden Mk10B back to original specifications, right down to the eight holes for the adjustable pedal assembly.
Lower front A-arm pickup points will be added later this week between projects.
The 47-year-old chassis had been modified at some point to allow the front 'porch' to lay flat. A proper Mk10B tilts up forward of the front shock pickup bulkhead ever-so-slightly.
We highly doubt the car has been this straight since it first rolled out of the Hampsheir's shop nearly half a century ago.
