    Hi MOPAR,

    Many thanks for helping with identifying the years, will now try and get the pics into some sort of order.

    Cheers.

We bought our 40 Champion coupe in 91, our son was born in June 92 (his first rod run, the Supernats in 92!) and we went to the French Nats the following year en mass. I did those little GB plates for Mike and Graham Craig (driving Rob Reid's Pilot) in yellow, Matt and Malc Farrant in red, Martyn Payne in turquoise, Al Marsh and Steve Hill in various shades of green and my own in black. It was a memorable trip and we hooked up with Sue and Colin Ayres after their tow hitch bust in mid France, fixed by a local welder. Happy memories.

    Hi 40Stude,

    Thankyou for helping to identify years of pics. With MOPAR's help and the pic with my ex wife in, that covers years 89, 91 and 93 or later.

    Cheers.

    Russ.

    Russ,

    somehow missed this thread, thats the one we was talking about, It was Malcolm Darlow's, i was over his way friday morning but he seems to have vanished.

    From memory Malcolm sold the car to a youngish geezer, who lived just up the road in the village from my folks place, seem to remember he ended up with a DD disqualification, never seen the car since. That must of been around 10 odd years back - Anyone know what happened to Granzilla ???

    cheers

    Hi Si,

    Yep, this was the one i was talking to you about in the cafe last month. I bought a few bits from him for my Granada Coupe and my Dorchester stretch.

    He was building this outside some council lock-ups over Marsh Farm, Luton.

    At the time to be honest i thought this was going to be another project that would end up abandoned and ultimately end up down the scrap yard.

    When i saw it at Knebworth i was suprised how close it was to the description he gave of how it would look when it was finished.

    I take my hat off to him, he had a vision in his head and saw it through, and done a very good job of it as well.

    Cheers.

    Russ.

    Hi Tiz57,

    I doubt she was stood by your car, more than likely checking the tyres and the tax disc, she works for the Hertfordshire Constabulary.

    Cheers.
