The #7 car looks like YS-023, the Zintek’s car. *Edit - trailer and motor home have Texas plates, so it’s not 023. Could it be a Joe Burch car? It also appears to be a PG car. I’m stumped.*
The first car with the Louisiana plates could be Stephen Spence’s clone. It was thought to be YS-088 for a long
time, but Stephen later said it was not that YS.

The number 7 car was not a Stinger. It may have had a tag thrown on it at one time but it was not a Stinger. I owned it for a while. Built by Charles Lee. He road raced it a little at TWS. Then he sold it to Bob Brenner and they converted it to an auto-x car. It had a tricked out PG with a 3000 convertor and a 3.89 posi. The original motor out of YS-115 was in it for a while but I pulled it when I sold 115 to Ken Holm. It was a fantastic handling car. Super neutral. It has since gone to Corvair heaven about 20 years ago.

Also on YS-088. Back when I helped clean up Joe Burch’s estate, there was rumours of a YS tag in the house. Blsnche knew nothing of it. The rumour was the tag was YS-088. We never found the tag in the house or the shop.

The first car that's shown at he top of the page, with the white wheels- there was a Yenko in the Chicago area with those same wheels in the past 5-10 years. I don't recall the owner, but the car has since sold.

Eric - that was YS-303, Al Huston’s for many years. Paul Fox now owns it. I thought of that car, but the one pictured has Louisiana plates. Paul was Chicago area, as you mentioned.

The white wheels were made by Taranta. They made 5 spoke and 8 spoke. Those are the 8 spoke. Most were 13x7. I have had several sets. They are strong, but heavy. I still have a set laying around
