    Does anyone know the history of this car? Project for 2020 everyone seems to recognise it but no one can give me any history.

    Mark 3, but to get the tyres under the back end the tailgate has been extended 3or 4 inches and a Mk4 rear number fitted. There is lots of really well done "stuff" on the car, and lots of "stuff" that looks rushed, as if it's been done to get the car out for a show season. It was first registered in 94 and seems to have only been on the road for a year.
    The only information I have been able to find is that it may have been owned by someone that worked for Burton power and that it may have had a Donovan motor in it. But no real information on it.

    Well, thanks to Matiz I got in touch with Alan and had a long telephone conversation. Turns out it was a drag strip car that he modified and put on the road. It had been featured in Street Machine back in 1985 and I had that very mag in my collection.
