Hi Pete
Congratulations it looks stunning.

What engine does that era get, I presume 1600 cross flow?
Single or two Webbers?
Slicks?

1600, one carb,Dunlop treaded. Although the last may change because Dunlop are having problems supplying since their Japanese factory burnt down.

Lol, my wife will say I have always been part of that group Larry. And sadly we have no kids to leave it to, so I intend to grow old disgracefully.

Congrats on your new adventure, Pete...and SO GLAD you're joining the "...aging disgracefully" club (see my signature line :laugh: )

Cheers...hoping you are as successful in FF as you have with your race horses!

I never realised how much wider the track is front to rear and I've been to literally hundreds of FF races... Unless it's a peculiar trick of the photographic angle, that looks quite an astonishing difference, compared with say, the car behind...

Hi Pete, congrats on your new project - 'tis a thing of beauty, & I reckon that you will get heaps of fun out of it !!

Small world re Frank Matich - my daughter's ex is Frank's grandson, & Frank's chief designer (Henry Nehribecki) did the dropped floors in my GT40 !!

All the best to you & Di,

Kind Regards,

I think it's the camera angle Keith, they look pretty much the same in the flesh.

I'm pretty sure it's the angle the photo is taken at Keith.

Exhaust fabricated and fitted, along with heat shield, battery box, muffler and pedal box. David also managed to get his competition licence.
