Re: CSX 2358

The Rinsey Mills book says only that it left the AC factory on 9/3/64 and was shipped to LA by boat. Colour Red and Black. Since the current body is not orginal and neither is the one on my BRA perhaps I could interest them in a straight swap :) I'd even do a Shelby and autograph the glove box for t...

Re: Quiz - "Guess Where I Was Today"

Nice bit of bodywork. And I don't mean the young lady in the Allard. Guess she must be handy with the spanners. Think I'd rather have the Hemi though - probably cheaper to run.

Re: Quiz - "Guess Where I Was Today"

Well a couple of you got the right country anyway. Couldn't be the UK because of the sun and not that far from the Italian border! It's not a proper Bugatti (then again I'm not a proper person) but a very nice aluminium replica owned by a friend of mine who lives just inland from Antibe in the south...

Re: Newbie

The engine looking a bit shiny. Started with a bare block rebuild 6months after I bought it (I'll tell you the story about why one day!) to get all the internals right, then ran it with the standard heads, Holley 390, teeny weeny air filter etc. Bit by bit I then replaced all the outside bits, start...

Re: Newbie

Hi Bill, Thanks for the words of Welcome. There are 3 on the members gallery showing it pretty much as it is today. If it works, here here are some more to add to those. The Harley belongs to a friend by the way. We make quite a nice noise together even though I do say it myself. 289-22a.JPG Robin

Newbie

Hi Everybody, As somebody new to this Forum, thought I'd better say hello. I did actually reply to the post about the Old BRA with a few details about my car but since there were no other replies after mine I guess few of you will have read it.

Re: Old BRA

Hi Everybody, I'm a new member and the link to the pics of the ex-Gerry Hawkridge BRA gives me the perfect opportunity to post for the first time since I too have one of that vintage (see pics in members gallery). I tracked down the guy who built mine and he said it was one of the first 2 or 3 fitte...
