1. There are only two "t"s in Cotington!

2. This car was at the 1988 PCS meet in Decatur, IL; I think Bob Hedges brought it (correction welcome).

Steve,
Any idea as to where it is now?? I would assume that Bob Hedges didn't own it very long(if he did own it).

Here it is from the '88 meet in Decatur, IL. And yes, it was a Bob Hedges car.

I thought it was because you had broken knuckles, and couldn't hold onto the rides.
