What was also a highlight for me was seeing Steve jump in 1986 29R and run it on the track. To watch Steve get into a car he hasn't been in since the 1980's was a huge deal for someone like me. I never got to see any of the races in the 1980's and what I did get to see was a little excerpt in a magazine. So to watch Steve jump into a car he drove and run it to the ragged edge was cool. Unfortunately the laps had to end early due to a tire failure.
The event for me was like being a fox in a chicken coup. So many nice cars and even better building new relationships with people and reuniting with old friends. While hanging out with some good friends I was able to dig through some SA10 documentation. Upon investigation I found that there was one car delivered with Saleen white face boost and fuel pressure gauges. Up until this point I had questioned whether or not Saleen was able to get the gauges completed before production ended on the SA10's. The gauges Saleen used prior to this one car were VDO black face gauges. From what I saw on some correspondence and build sheets SA10 #11 was delivered with the Saleen white face boost/fuel gauges. This car was the last one built in the run of 9 cars. The other cars that have the boost/fuel pressure gauges as an option have VDO gauges. The only car that I don't know about is SA10 #07. It had the gauges as an option but the car has been stolen and never recovered. it's the one car I have not seen in person.... obviously.
With finding out this information I've decided to put the white face boost/fuel gauges in #4. This is something I waffled on but I've sourced a set and am currently having them calibrated by the original manufacturer of the gauges.
