Car storage space - My long-time renter at my shop (At 240 Bryant, aka World Headquarters of Team Terrific Racing) has vacated his space. This means there's room to store a number of cars. Some spaces have already been spoken for but three's room for maybe a couple more cars. Centrally located near I-25 and 6th Ave. Pretty easy in-an-out access. The building is always heated and has security. The office area would be available for "hanging out." Probably room for a small work bench and some tools. Also a full size beer fridge and microwave is available. Unfortunately no space outside for trailers or tow vehicles. Monthly price depends on how the space would be used (just car storage, or some modest wrenching, or actual restoration, etc.). If you have an interest in one or two spaces, call me.

Information needed- Looking for information on Bud Morley who died in 2000. He was a long-time SCCA and USAC racer. He’s in the #33 Dagrada Lancia in the photo. The #89 car appears to be OUR Condor FJr.
Just a lucky photo since the New Zealander who sent this to us was researching the Dagrada juniors.
Here’s the info on the photo: note on it says “Midwestern USA Regional”.
Does anyone know of or have a list of Morley’s races and entries for Oct 1961 to July 1963?
That would let us pin down the logical track and MAYBE advertise for help in getting the track identified… maybe with an entry list.
With a NAME for the Condor driver and/or owner, we MIGHT be able to zero in on (and even complete) the CONDOR’s history in America!

Condor Chassis 006- Engine 006. Imported by Bieners, the car probably went direct to Bud (Bernard) Morley: RIP 2000. The car with USA export style body was painted Black with Amadori wheels and was first raced by Morley in Oct 1961. Raced extensively by him in Mid-west regional events until it was last seen with him at an event in July 1963. Morley Raced invariably with a number three somewhere in the race number.
