The Banquet Bronco

The "Banquet Bronco" has recently been rediscovered and found a good home.  The story goes, that in the earliest Mexican 1000, NORRA promised a banquet at the end of the race.  So, Vic Abruzzese donned a tuxedo at the start so he'd have something to wear for the festivities.

Tom Duffy, Vic Abruzzese and margaritas - 1969

The Bronco sporting an extra tall air filter - 1970
burned top hat - 1969
It raced from 1967 -1977 which is quite a testament for one vehicle.  It's now being restored and hopefully will see Baja again.
