Judy and I have quite a few competition miles in Chuck Banks' #3187, when it was Rich Agiorni's car in NorCal. At the time (mid '80s) it had a 500-horse engine with SVO heads, Gr-3 brakes (factory kit), 180 exhausts and 8 & 10 BBS. The ZF has the rare 4-plate LSD. I could have done without the Recaros which shoved me up into the headliner, but they fit Rich and Judy fine. The paint was always Ford deep- blue.
In the early '80s, I made up a list of consecutive s/ns in Nor-Cal because I was curious as to whether DeTomaso batch-painted the cars in groups. Found out no: consecutive s/ns were likely to be any color. About 50% of my 100 car list were red, about 30% were black, then the rest were any other color. Least popular was DeTomaso's two shades of green. Seems like those numbers are still true today.
