    The new henry hirise?????

    whilst at pod with bry,we had a semi intelligent conversation (while looking at titties)...

    the question was posed "do you think red victor 2 will be the new henry hirise??"

    "good question" was the reply.....

    i am opening this up to the masses..whats your views or can you name a car to fit the considerably large shoes???

    No. I think they are two different animals, both iconic cars but not interchangeable ie Henry Hirise one of the first of a style ( gasser) , front cover car of the first issue of a new mag and TV advert featured but primarily a street car . Red Victor an incredible piece of street /strip performance ,holding many titles and highly respected ( as it should be ) for its achievements but mainly a drag raced influenced motor.

    I think Henry was a product of those times and there is unlikley to be anything as different or groundbreaking ( for these shores) nowadays. Probably the nearest thing to it would be the first Prostreeter built over here ( sorry I've no idea to who that title woud go?) .

    If you are talking race inspired, low, full cage then I'd say 'Mr Torquer' in its first guise would have to rank up their Russ. Thruxton 82 or thereabouts. I don't think the term Pro Street had even been thought of at that time.

    Yep, when it was white.

    Nick's 47 would have been around 86 I'd guess and yes, Clarkson did pull it to pieces. Described the driving position as similar to sitting on the khazi from memory. Happy days eh?

    Just thought, what about Paul Bird's Pop? Other than the oversize rear arches, it was a classic pro street car in it's first guise, with the red white and blue graphics and that was the early 80's too. By 85/86 Rudi Bartholdi's Ford 8 was out and about too.

    Sorry Liam, we seem to have highjacked your thread. Now back to Red Victor 2...
