The good news: the was still ticking off the Ferrari and Maserati set on the race track when Brock Yates took it to the Monterey Historical Races in `97; "We pushed the T between two Ferraris to warm it up," reported Duffy. "Brock borrowed a couple of Ferrari mechanics to help him. This gal came out of the Ferrari trailer and looked at the T and said, "Why do they let this thing run against our cars, it isn't even aerodynamic?" She didn't spot the Japanese war helmet that I cut in half for air scoops to cool the front brakes. The funny thing is, during the race Bert Skidmore, driving the Eliminator, got behind both Ferraris and blew both of them off."The bad news: While the T can go out and play, it better not get real dirty or skinned up cause it's all spiffed up now and is involved in a new type of competition.This photo was taken at the 53rd Pebble Beach Concours d' Elegance as the Eliminator rolled up on stage winning its class with current car owner Brock Yates on the turtledeck and Duffy at the wheel.
