I Have Seen Some Penske Heuers Sold on Ebay

I have seen some Penske-engraved Heuers sold on ebay. Unfortunately,

  • it was a long time ago
  • I didn't even bid
  • I didn't keep track of where they ended up.
I was young . . . that was before OTD . . . If only I knew then what I know now.

Thanks for sharing this interesting history. I have seen Donuhue's Sunoco Porsche 917/30 a couple of times at the Monterey historics . . . snapped some photos of my kids sitting in it . . . It's an inspiring car. One year, Mark's son David drove the car at the Monterey Historics. What a display!!



: recently i've been chatting with a great guy,
: Peter(phx/az.). anyway turns out he has/had
: a couple of heuers including a fantastic
: carrera cal12(one of the best i've ever
: seen) and at one time owned this
: beauty......
: what's so special about this particular camaro,
: is that it was given to Bill Scott while he
: worked on/with the Penske race team. here's
: a back pic with the engraving....

: here's what Peter the former owner of this
: piece knew about it..... "All I know is
: that it was originally purchased from Bill
: Scott's son and it was given to Bill, one of
: their head mechanics at Penske Racing when
: Mark Donohue was driving Camaros for the
: Penske team..."

: i did a little research to find a pic of Mr.
: Scott, and came across this site dedicated
: to the memory of Mark Donohue....
: with permission from the owner, Mr. Paul
: Powell, of this site, here is a pic i
: borrowed for this post so all could see Mr.
: Scott, as well as Mark Donohue, and Roger
: Penske.....

: here is the corresponding text that goes with
: this pic to make it make sense, also
: borrowed with permission....
: "Bridgehampton, NY 1967 USRRC race
: starting grid. Roger Penske leaning down
: talking to Mark with crewman Bill Scott
: behind Roger. Thanks John McGinnis for
: another great shot."

: i'm curious, as Peter has said he sold this
: particular piece, if anyone who participates
: here happens to own it currently or even
: owned it at one time?

: as i've mentioned in the past i despise
: engravings, but this is my exception to the
: rule! this is the ultimate to me, as it's a
: heuer first off and secondly directly tied
: to a moment in racing history. Big thanks to
: Peter for letting me share this, and a big
: thanks to Mr. Powell for allowing me to
: borrow the pic and text to pull it all
: together. here's a link to Mr. Powells site
