Can anyone tell me what current PRA driver drives this car and what the car is called today?

This was shot at Sacto BOR around 1982 or 83



(Would have added this to the old timer forum but since it's a current driver I thought this fit here)

Frank Kohlweiss got that car from Dave Bonbright back in the early 90's. It was set-up to compete in the 11.90 class. It could run the number and then some, but never went straight off the launch. It was like a scud missle....no telling where the car was going to go. It was for sale a few years back but I think it went unsold and is now in mothball storage in one of Frank's many secret collection garages.

WOW thanks Brian :turd:

I like old Photos of the car, it has been racing for a long time, just ask RLR they had to straighten it out after all the years of racing, :scare: I do like Chop Tops, and it has come a long way from the 07 season and it is running well after a tuff 08 season….. :hurt: We have changed everything but the driver from the 07 season but he is next if he can’t get her done, :scared: I sound like a broken record but with out Marty, RLR, BugPack and TODAY VW Paradise…………………… :happy: I could not do it…… and the help and support of the Silver Bugget Family I am very happy with the car, Lance and I will be doing some TT this Thursday at the dale, for Vegas ………………………………..I do like the 08 Jager. Car better than the 07 Jager. car :tease: But it would fun to go back in the day and race :happy:

It was fun reliable car and Jon had to go mess with and sink a ton of dough into it. I love the car , I loved it the first time I saw it even in primer when Dwight was running it. Kawasaki green baby.
Great history and still making history.
Awesome job Jon.
