Very nice. Was this up for sale last year? Hope to see it at a few shows in the summer.

A V8 Super Saloon circuit racer form the late 60s early 70s which has been recently restored I believe.

Cover of the current 4WD magazine in NZ.

Had a squizz at the story. Involves a Suzuki, and least 3 Minor's some wood, and carbon fibre. Will see how much the mag costs, and if I want to read the full story.

Looks like a cool beast - I'd be interested to know more...

Was not sure if I should have put this in the "Moggy Spotting" thread?

I was told about some American cars on the prom at tea time so went to have a look, got there as they were finishing, turns out there is a group of Americans and Hot Rods started meeting on the third Thursday of the month.

This nice Minor Van was just squeezed on the edge of the forecourt.

Made from original wings and bonnet, you can see the mounting flange on the O/S wing.

The owner did not seem to be near it so I do not know where it was from.

Will try and get back there next month.

A lot of work has gone into that!
Would be nice to see some pictures of it when it is not crammed onto the edge of the pavement.

Looks smart, and a bit of a throwback to the sort of thing you used to see in 1980s custom car magazines, with the Alleycat alloys, bright red paint, etc.

Very clean and tidy! Agreed that this is pure 80's Custom Car Mag and must be one of the best around!

Here's a picture of my Brother in laws car that got me so interested in Minors. I hung around with him an awful lot as he built bikes and this car,
He bought it as a standard Minor in the late 70's and this was petty much its finail incarnation before it was sold some time in the 90's - nothing fancy by todays standards with marina discs, mgb 1800 angine and box and tele's all round - I loved it.
I've looked on the DVLA site and it doesn't appear to be around any more.

Bought an unfinished project many years ago & even after "finishing" her, still always finding plenty to change/repair/modify - all part of the fun! First photo not how I got her, at least 3 years into the project - work & family time always compete & win!

Looks terrific! What engine is it - Rover V8, at a guess, and which wheels are those?

Correct, 3.9 Rover with 5speed. Wheels are Centerline Autodrags, have always loved them & think they do suit the car - a reader of Retro Cars mag agreed too when a picture was featured in Readers Rides.
