    What about some pics of some 60's customs, with banded steelies, spotlights and ported heads with twin carb set ups? ANGLIAS, MORRIS MINORS, MINIS, CORTINAS... What pics have you got?
    cheers. paul

    Attachment 1438Attachment 12441Attachment 12440Attachment 12439Attachment 12442Attachment 12438[ATTACH12439[/ATTACH][B]Here`s one of the first Hot Rod`s that was built in the U.K. Grimsby by four of my mate`s, John Ford who has always swayed to ww2 miltary vehicles he has a super collection of orig Jeeps & DUKW`s.. There were 3 other Guy`s in this sindicate & you can tell by the way they built this 36 Cabro that they didn`t buy the American Hot Rod mag. In 1962 the 4 of them went to the fiirst American Hot Rod meeting at Manchester in the 36 Ford Cabro & I went in John Parry`s Ford F100 & the next day after the meeting went to Skipton Yorkshire to look at a 34 Ford Coupe that was advertised in MOTOR SPORT which was my 2nd choice of Coupe but when John Parry & myself went into the barn with the owner , yes it was stored in a barn, the coupe was a 32 Ford 5 window, wow I couldn`t beleave my luck. The guy wanted 200 & I only had 100 I begged & pleaded with him to let me have it & he eventually said Ok. John towed it home to Cleethorpes & the rest is history, a very long time ago. The Meeting was organised by the late Clive Lingard who was Chicago John`s best mate , there were also some American Guy`s there advetising Wynns oil adertive & they ran some Drag racing films of the late 50`s, that was great cos we had never seen a real drag meet .,They were also selling super Californian Saturn black baseball jackets with the Wynns logo on & red button`s, & yes I sure purchased one. Can anyone else remember this meeting. There was also parked outside a 31 Model A ford panel van. Great memories.......Cheer`s Bri
