Back in the days when it took giant brass ones, a truckload of skill and more than a hearty helping of luck to race behemoth thoroughbreds on primitive tracks on waif-thin tires, Earl Cooper and his No. 8 Stutz dominated West Coast racing, both with and without factory backing. Fortunately, as of SIA #82, August 1984, No. 8 was still around and still in fine condition to be hustled around a track for one of the earliest vintage racing events. Konrad F. Schreier Jr. had the story of its most recent excursion in that issue.
