Honda's First Off Road Race Car


From Kevin Ward:

the current owner fired it up and ripped around the parking lot- sounded snappy! would be great to see it run in the NORRA event.

Sweet!
I remember seeing the first Subaru 4WD wagon in the 1975 Baja 1000 (Score's first 1000).

failed CV joint was its demise.

A failure in the CV joint drive hub snap rings caused them to come apart when the car would jump, and become airborne… Every time this happened, [Robertson] would get out and shove the hub back into place, and go a bit farther until it would come apart again. He did this until the early morning. Exhausted, he threw in the towel, and the little N600 was returned back home, a little worse for the wear.

lets not forget - without Dave Ekins and Billy Robertson Jr. driving down Baja in 1962 on Honda's new Honda CL72 Scrambler motorcycle there would be no Baja 1000
