I was talking with Don LaFranchi the other day and he mentioned that he did a bunch of work on the Team Eliminator boat and Gary Coe. Don was instrumental in building my sons boat back in the 70's & 80's and I would love to find some information and maybe somebody might have pictures or storys of this boat that I could share with Don.
I talked to Gary a few years back. He was still with the phone company and I'm sure by now he has retired. Norm and I built Gary 2 boats back then and Bob Sebring did the engine. The second boat was very competitive but Gary would only run the race's in northern Calif. Red Bluff and Chowchilla we had some good times at the races. I'm sure he is still in central Calif and I'm sure someone on the boards will dig him up.
