1969 debut. Radiator and wedge nose was changed by mid-season.

1974, note cage

1975, roll cage was re-built due to rules changes.

1976, which I think the Paternoster restoration resembles.

1985 debut of Paternoster restoration... just 3 years after Jim Shampine's death.

The panel on the back was a Shampine trademark in earlier years. It's a "flying saucer", kid's snow toy rivited in place!

Jim introduced this deadly weapon in 1976 but continued to race the wedge for most of the season.
