You may not recognize Tar Babe, but it's under the red paint somewhere.

This is the evolution of the Tar Babe, the big picture was taken recently.

 

This is it back in the day:

 

And finally The Pink Panther back in the day:

 

The Pink Panther looks exactly the same to this time, but now it has moved to Germany and is in the loving hands of Ole Endler. It was Ole who sent me this Video which he in turn got from Mario Bamboa jr., the son of Mario Bamboa of Grillos Racing - Mexico. The video was recorded somewhere in Mexico,  in the 80's. Mario is the current owner of the legendary Tar Babe. When Tar Babe was sold in

1972, it was painted red, like seen in this video. The driver of  Pink Panther ought to be Memo Moreno, I'm not sure who drove Tar Babe. It could be Pancho Mendoza, the builder of Pink Panther or Mario Gamboa. Later Tar Babe was painted black/red, then red/white and finally black again.

 

ENJOY!
