Her technical expertise and Classic car knowledge were sorely missed!
I think that's what Tony was thinking!

That's a handy link.
Like the colour scheme...looks familiar. Not sure about wheels or red engine though.
Must have been in a front/back smash, just as well it wasn't rusty.
Quite a tame restoration for them.
Now Dean will have to turn cars around in a week to compete!

No diff arm, but heavy right foot!
Torque has caused damage by twisting rear of body shell & boot floor now needs welding around perimeter. It could do with some strengthening, any one any ideas how?

An old run from 2011. When injection system is up & running it should be a smoother graph & more power. Once its up to boost at 4000 revs it doesn't change a lot.

How about a supercharger? You can keep engine spec fairly normal & run 8psi safely. Loads of torque & 40% power increase from standard.
Alloy headed 302 with Rotrex blower = 490bhp & 570lb torque

I've been to Carmel during Monterey week & its unbelievable what's parked up & the cars driving about. Highly recommended. The racing isn't as good as Goodwood but standing by the "corkscrew" is unique. And its sunny!

Loved the casual one handed steering. Has he sneaked in an electric power system?
Lucky there was no impact at chicane.
