Original owner Ted Struse (second from R) claims the money he paid for his '69 Runner was the "deal of a lifetime." And when you consider that this car, which Ted bought new for the paltry sum of $2,995 against a list of $3,508.90, has been winning races and setting records for over 30 years, you'd have to agree! Also pictured are Lou Carbone, Project Six Pack driver/mechanic (second from L), and Sparky "Tower of Power" Schaefer (R), official electrician and unofficial team bouncer. Jim Zazenski photo.
