this 880 was sold to gary howsare of everett and is being restored by howsare. i gave jr. ritchey 5 or 6 photos of this car when we had supper at path valley about 2month ago.
Actually Richard Howsare, Gary's brother, is restoring this car as we speak. The Howsare's can tell the story better but this was their first 5H purchased from either June or Roy. The car was damaged and was sat aside in the day. Turned out a blessing as the only 5H to be saved by the family. Legend has it, the car sat in one of Richard's farm buildings at his home between Bedford and Cumberland for years and that not too many people even knew it was there.
Ron Trevis repaired the car for Richard several years ago and hopefully will be completed soon.
There is another Howsare brothers 5H here in central Pa. It's the #8 Lingle Fiberglass non caged sprinter you see at the vintage events. The Lingle's removed the cage and restored it as a USAC replica. You can still see the 5H stamped on the torsion tubes when built by Floyd Trevis...
