the paint off with loving care so that we can see the different
layers of paint, which will identify the pure history of the
stripping the tail and will uncover the many colors of paint
dating back to the middle 60's. One of the reasons we do this
process is because the serial number on this 906 doesn't appear
to be an original factory stamping. 906-138 was originally
delivered to Mr. Bowman in West Palm Beach, Florida and after
that it gets sketchy. The current owner, Tom Stegman, bought
the car from Scott Flanders and Scott bought the car from
some guy named Block. He was from somewhere in South America
(maybe Venezuela). A Venezuelan photographer has pictures
of the 906's that raced in South America. We are hoping to
compare pictures with owners, therefore proving it is indeed
138 or some other chassis number. Pictures don't lie, but
often chassis numbers do.

white competition stripe down the middle, then a few different
whites, a few different yellows, a few different greens, and
more whites, and then Scott's computer livery. Stay tuned.
