Circa 1965

Martin Hill:    "Got a call from Ray Wolfe at Hi-Po Motors and he said to come down and bring my race car savings. I had $1000 total.  A couple of buddies and I went to see him and he asked me how much I had saved (typical car salesman).  I told him.  He said I have been saving this for you Martin and we at Shelby believe it should be yours.  He took me out in the lot and there was a cherry 1964 Comet Caliente: a Holman-Moody Bill Stroppe East African Safari Rally car. It was on the cover of Hot Rod magazine and was an official Homoglated racer with all the papers. I was in. They gave me things to go with it and I outdid Rex Ramsey at the Willow School and they were forced to concede after only a couple minutes that I was entitled to my license to drive a "Big Bore" Sedan.  I was very very blessed to get that perfect running and strong racer and shortly to take it to the Santa Barbara Road Races."

Note hub/lugs still attached.
