I can see a tiny bit of the white Bogar 99 with orange trim. I am VERY interested in seeing ANY photos of the Bogar 99 when it was white,esp when Jan was driving it. I also asked for a timeline for when Jan Opperman drove the Bogar Car for the first time,but no one answered. Sorry for the thread hi-jack.
I kind of remember going to Susky in maybe very early 72? and Jan was in the Bogar 99,it was white and he got into a pile-up and couldn`t race in the feature. Anyone with concrete info about that phase of the Bogar/Opperman history, I would really appreciate hearing from!!! :cool:
BTW,that is a really cool picture,and the color is great :cheers2:

Thanks you very much! I really want to get Jan`s history in the Bogar Car straightened out in my mind. I think this is a big help. That Susky race must have been Early in the spring of 72-I distinctly remember Jan-Susky-some kind of pile-up-White Bogar 99 with orange trim like in that photo at the top of this thread. The next time I saw Jan race in thr Bogar 99,Probably the Grove in April or May,the car was Orange with white trim..... :cool:

So I only ever saw Jan in the White Bogar once, the time at Susky,IIRC....I`ve never seen a photo of him in the white car on the track.

This is the only pic I`ve seen of the White Bogar 99 while Jan was driving it.
Checking my information,the pic was taken on 4/15/72 at Selinsgrove-Jan won the feature.
