Notes on the cars:

  1. Argo JM5 [036-FA] (Larry Dunn): Built late in the 1979 season and invoiced to Nick May, who drove it in the Brands Hatch Formula Atlantic race in October 1979. Then to Dave Rackham and tested by him, but remained unused until Rackham advertised it in August 1980. It was finally raced by Nick Adams, and run for him by Colin Bennett Racing, in two races in September and October 1980. Sold to Jim Blackwell (Seattle, WA) and raced by him in ICSCC events in 1981, then advertised in June 1982. Raced once more by Blackwell in 1985 after his newer Argo JM9 was damaged at Portland. Also raced by Allen Karlberg (Seattle, WA) for 1986 and Larry Dunn (Lake Stevens, WA) for 1987, both of whom used it in local WCAR events.
