John Hellmuth is a friend of mine. He's now retired and moved from St. Louis to rural Arkansas a few years back. I just got off the phone with him after telling him that I'd seen a model of the Hellmuth and Arteaga gasser. When I asked him if he knew the where abouts of the original car, he told me, " it is Wayne's (Arteaga) daily driver." It's now powered by a 455 Olds, has a/c, ps, and pb.
