Very Cool. I have one of Jim's CW Dominators from about '89 when he was still with Roy at R&R. Could you please post a few more pics of your CAT here? thanks.

I saw that car when Jim first raced it in Joliet. Wicked fast car with him at the wheel.

Not my car, Dieter posted it on facebook. Apparently, only this picture remains.

I ran into him at the track today. He said he used it in outlaw 3 minute money races around the St. Louis area. Pretty cool story.

Okay, I see. I prefer to stay away from facebook; not a fan. When I get some time, I'll post some pictures of Jim's old Dominator. It's unchanged since I bought it so maybe he will recognize it.
