Electromotive 280ZX Turbo IMSA cars

I registered specifically to make this post; A thread on here from 2006 popped up as a google search result, and it was someone asking about Don Devendorf’s Electromotive 280ZX Turbo cars, looking for information. The thread was closed so I couldn’t reply, but if that person (or anyone else) is still around and has any interest in those cars (they ran GTU and GTO), I’m your guy. My dad worked for Don, he was a mechanic for the Electromotive team in ‘82, ‘83 and part of ‘84. I have his team jacket, and a little model of the ‘83 car they made to raise money when Tony Adamowicz got sick. I talk to or see my dad almost every day, so if there are any particular questions anyone has I can pass them along! I also have a handful of photos of the cars that you wouldn’t find on the internet, so I can gather those and post em if you want. The GTO car made north of 700hp, and was the first car to break 200mph on the backstretch at Daytona. Thing was a beast. So feel free to reach out if there’s anything you’d like to know!

I'd love to see the pics...

Sounds like you have a pretty cool Dad. I had nothing to do with the original post but would love to see the pics. I have an 81 280ZX and need a good paint scheme...
