Notes about the Model:  Nice running boat with good handling characteristics. Can be fast in good water.

 

Notes about the Real Boat: Laird Pierce's Last attempt to have an effective contender ran short with this new hull. Rough Riding Characteristics would leave drivers legs numb after testing or a heat of racing. Most of the problems were fixed fixed by the time the boat became the Timex, by replacing a faulty fuel tank.

 

Notes about 2018: The 1970 Parco won the first heat it race in, and was the 2017 Gold Cup Winner. She finished 7th in the 2017 High Point Standings.
