Default Aronow's The Cigarette Pic's

Does anyone have any other pic's of the Cary named The Cigarette that Don Aronow won all the races with in 1969. The only pic I have seen is the one where he is at about a 45 degree angle getting big air. I would like to see more of this boat like the cock pit and engine compartment and drives. Where is this boat now?

There was almost two "The Cigarette" Cary 32'.
In 1969 Aronow to partecipate to World Championships must go in Europe,then he builded for him two boats.
After he won the World Title,sold one of "The Cigarette" to the Italian driver Vincenzo Balestrieri that renamed it "Black Tornado",mainteining the same colours. Balestrieri bought another Cary 32' still named "Black Tornado" for Francesco Cosentino,of the Tornado Racing Team.
Balestrieri used the 32' until the 1972.
The other Black Tornado after that Balestrieri modified it in 1971 shortened to 31' with a new lighter wodden deck,come back in Usa where was sold to Hal Sahlman and raced in 1974.
The second original "The Cigarette" was sold to the Australians Carr brothers and there it raced.
After the Carr brothers were killed in a race the boat was used by the other Ausssie Arnold Glass in 1973-74 and then Norman Jenkin in 1975.
Of this Cary 32' and the others Cary 32' I don't know what happened and if they still exists.
Anyone know something more?
