The Bolus & Snopes Shelby GT350 Mustang SFM 6S1828, driven by Bob Mitchell of Huntsville, AL, was pictured in the 1971 program; the GP was to have been the second outing of the car that year. Mitchell, according to the program, was a former SCCA National Champion and , according to another source, was the guy who saw to the car's conversion from a Hertz car to a full fledged racer.

The original owner was Sam E. Scott, Hazelhurst, MS, and half-interest was sold to William Jeanes, Grosse Pointe Farms, MI. You may remember the team by way of its team mascot, a sorrel mule named Dick Johnson. The team had two ARRC runs, resulting in a DNF and a 5th place. The team acquired its name from Ovid Bolus and Flem Snopes. The car is still raced in vintage events by John Baldwin, Covington, LA. This information comes to us by way of Howard Pardee, who is always a great help in tracking down the histories of Shelby cars, and the Shelby American Automotive Club's The Shelby American Wold Registery.

Does anyone remember when Dick Johnson and William Jeanes shared the podium at the SVRA annual dinner?

And do you know that Howard Pardee has a jar of Carroll Shelby's poop in his memorabilia collection?

What other car did the team run? The Shelby is still owned by John Baldwin at last report.

I believe it was Jeanes that was the guest speaker at the Shelby club banquet in about 2000-2002?
I believe the other car was a early Camaro?

Good for you. Both of those cars raced with SVRA during the "glory years" of Vintage Racing.
