Re: New member from USA

Colin’s car( No52 ) is a modified Ali Kirkham 289.
If you like the Sebring style then Hawk cars can provide you with a fibre glass version looking the same as the yellow Executor.
Also seen in the club’s photos is Migge’s excellent example of a Sebring which was converted from a BRA.

Re: Messing with leaf springs

Try looking through the Clubs tech articles for leaf spring mods as I think Dave Pilbeam used composite items with only one leaf. He rated them highly but I thought it a bit dodgy having only one leaf.

Re: New Member request

Hi Keith, welcome. I can back up Clive’s comment as a happy customer. Heritage encouraged me to up date my agreed value to meet current trends and the premium wasn’t raised! Take 6 decent photos to include all four quarters of the body, engine bay plus interior and they will be happy to help. Rememb...

Re: Making a bolt

Guys, let’s be fair this wasn’t a simple bolt. Squared headed with an undercut between thread and shaft to ensure nut tightens fully but no thread left in the working dia of the bolt shank. I have had to draw up and get a few of those made in my time. Also we don’t know the material either so it mig...

Re: Hawk 427 purchase

John, I would suggest that your first port of call would be Hawk Cars and check with Gerry that he recognises the chassis number and can confirm date of build and perhaps the spec. Next is to check that it is correctly registered which if it was built by Hawk for their brochure photo then I would ex...
