    Cool Pop Thread

    As there are threads for Anglias, Cortinas etc now, I thought it was about time we resurrected the Pop thread, which was created, "over there".

    I know a certain person has/had a huge stash of photos from the 70's/80's, (hi Geoff!). Good to see you over here!

    I'll start the ball rolling with the Essex Popular Front snaps, and then add the rest when I get the time!!

    Pretty sure this Gary Blandfords , an ex Sothern Roadster and Victory Wheeler this car spawned 2 or 3 local copies using thd same formula, Heradl front, engine and box with an Anglia rear on Anglia springs. He got this when he was seventeen, ran it around with VW rims and then upgraded by the time he was about 21 .Garys stil got a Vicky in his front garden waiting to be finished though he's mainly playing bikes at the mo. Only lives a couple of road away from me.

    Hey , does anybody know what happened to my old car ?

    I had it for twelve years , ran it in the Rover v8 class. It was blue and called "Born to Run". The last i heard it was in Devon and painted satin black.

    The reg number was TTC768 , but iam sure that was sold and another age relate number was on it.

    Just curious........

    Sounds like your car is in the same garage as my old one 922 FVW.

    Disappeared off the face of the earth!!

    Last I saw of it was in 2000, on the back of a trailer heading for Colchester

    have you got any snaps of TTC you can post?
    Someone might recognise it

    First one is from Secret Rodders Ball, 1984



    Electric Funeral - at Ardleigh Rod Run 1977







    Gold Dust & Moon Dust











    Russ Ward

    An old favourite of mine, built by Russ Ward. He bought a Pop and an Austin Devon for £5 the pair, stuck the Ford shell on the Austin chassis, and then dropped in a 3.8 Jag engine.





    This one came from the Isle of Wight, built by Lee Schofield, proprietor of the bodyshop mentioned on the side!. 1390cc Hillman Minx engine and reversed 10" Mini wheels on the front!!!!



    Lazy Lotus, built by Phil Baines, from the Bristol area I think. Powered by Lotus, naturally, this car was seriously low, check out the grille. I nearly bought this car in 1977 but he was too far away for me to travel "on-spec", so I drove 4 miles to Basildon and bought my Pop there instead!!











    Phil Chappell - 1967 and then with wild paint job in 1977
