Over the years I've
built a total of eight cars, and two or three front ends.
The first car was nothing like the rest, and the rest all
follow a similar theme.
I took the opportunity to
take a few pics of these at Foster on our annual two-day
trial there. 22-23rd October 2005. Another good car, now
owned by Peter Hill wasn't there, but I hope to include this
car in the near future.
I built this one as the successor to my first car in 1975.
It was an immediate winner, resulting in 4 firsts, 4 seconds
& a 4th in 9 trials in the first season. Went on to win
Geoff Taylor Trophy 5
times & the John Pryce Trial 3 times. Neil Fletcher
bought the car from me in 1980. Had a minor crash soon after
and I rebuilt the newer front end onto it then. Fletch sold
the car to Peter Hill after that who in turn sold it to
Rinie Weisema. Rinie sold it to Eric Daffy, who sold it to
'Whiskers' from Hastings. Rinie bought the car back a couple
of years ago & I changed the back end to fully
independent & the brakes to discs.
