I need some HELP!!!!!!

Recently I was paroozing the Aero Warriors site and noticed a couple shots of a white Charger 500 #41 sponsored by Robbins Electric and driven by Al Unser. The photos were taken at Riverside in 1969.

I was wondering if any one knows the history of the car and if anyone has any pictures. I would love to build this car...prelim decals are done!

Thanx, Frank

Hey Frank, here is a link over at Randy's that I found for you. It only has two pictures but they aren't too bad. Let me know if it doesn't help any. Mo

Frank, Sorry I missed this man. :))) I don't know too much on this specific one other than that it was owned by Rudy Hoerr, (same family as Irv Hoerr who had success in IMSA and Trans Am.) It also ran most often as the number 4, and was Al's regular USAC ride. I think they did just about the whole circuit with it for a couple years. I saw it run at Milwaukee in 1969! That's about it. Mo probably knows more specific things. But I know alot about Charger 500s and Nichels cars of which this was one, so I can answer a lot of general questions and may have parts you need. Let me know.
