Re: Northern Machine shops

Hi Matt, In the past, I've used Kenny at EDA (below) for dyno work on my Ford. However, he prefers Chevys.

Re: Northern Machine shops

Hi Matt,

I recently moved from Yorkshire, but I've asked a couple of my friends (one, a well-known Yorkshire-based drag racer) who I'm sure, will come up with the info you need.

I'll get back to you soon,

Phil

Re: 289 on tv

Yet another cheap TV programme to add to the thousands of other garbage productions on air. It's a crime such a nice car had to be featured in such a bad crapumnetary. The producers should be ashamed. Was the "HANK" chassis produced by the legendary Gerry Ha n kridge by any chance? This was the car ...

Re: ACOC Annual Sprint - Goodwood - Sat 10th November

Managed to squeeze your announcement into the newsletter Colin, but there was a bit of a delay going to print, so members may only get to read about it after the event, unfortunately. Good luck and I hope to see you at the NEC.

Re: Hello! New member with a key question...

Hi Matt, Welcome to the club! Former member, Bill Telford, has recently sold his Hawk 289, after 17 wonderful years of ownership. As far as I know, with Hawk seats, he didn't have an issue, but I'm not sure what set up he was using. Bill is a good 6' 3" (ish) tall. You can contact Bill at bill.telfo...

Re: Hawk 289 IVA testing

Hi Jerry,

I'm afraid I can't help you much regarding IVA, but I will soon become your nearest 289 Register neighbour when I move to Litton in a couple of weeks time.

Good luck with the IVA. And, if you think you might need an extra pair of hands at all, just let me know and I can pop over.

Phil.

Re: Scam/blackmail emails

Email password should be okay. It was my forum password which they knew.

My worry is if they start threatening to reveal my eBay buying habits to the Mrs – I might just have to pay up!
