Notes on the cars:

  1. Argo JM9 [056-FA] (Jim Blackwell): New to Tyrrell Arnold to race in the 1981 Irish Atlantic series, then to Jim Blackwell (Seattle, WA) in 1982 and raced in WCAR events in 1984 and 1985, then Marty Knoll (North Vancouver, BC) who raced it in WCAR in 1986 and 1987. Then to Terry Edwards in 1987-88 and from him to Gary Milligan (Richmond, British Columbia) who used it as the basis of the Buick-engined Lotus Europa with which he won the National Autocross Championship in 1994.
  2. March 722 [30] (Larry Dunn): New to racing car importer Pierre Phillips (Portland, OR). It is believed to have been intended for customer Bud Rude (Auburn, WA), but no record has yet been found of Rude driving the car. Used by Phillips to win the Formula B class at the Oregon Region's Rose Cup Races SCCA National on 11 June 1972. It is then said to have gone to Mike Fisher (Portland, OR), who raced a black-and-white March 722 in the Westwood Players series round in May 1973 and in SCCA Nationals in the Pacific northwest that season. Sold to Bob Tracy (Hillsboro, OR) who continued to race it in SCCA National and Regionals in Oregon in 1974, then in ICSCC events in 1975. Then via Steve Plumb and Jack Scher to Squire Tomasie (Bellevue, WA) in 1978, then to Mike Gilbert and Ty Fikse in 1981. Then via Jim Burnett and Allan Karlberg to Larry Dunn (Lake Stevens, WA) who raced the car in WCAR Formula Atlantic between 1984 and 1986, and advertised it in December 1986 with chassis number 722-30. Sold to Steve Marks in May 1987, then to Kevin Shipley in September 1997. In 2007, Tim Greenshields in Colorado sold the car to Scott Monroe in Texas. From him it went to John Slade (Texas) in 2012, then to a customer of Don Blenderman (Houston, TX) in 2016. In May 2021, the car was for sale by Blenderman.
