    This ran in early street eliminator in the late nineties. Ran by Eddie Wallbanks if I remember good. Ran 13's, respectable when it probably weighed 2 tons.
    Its a replica of a barris? film car, called 'The Car'

    The Car

    Yes I do very well - It was built in the late eighties by South Londons Streatham Crash Repairs, John Aird, 'California Pete', Steve De Souza (remember him RIP) and I beileve Steve Bradshaw may have had a hand in it (?)

    Not sure about this but from memory in was based around a 70s Lincoln Continental (happy to stand corrected tho') and was built to resemble the car in the 1977 movie - The Car with James Brolin - google The Car (1977) for more info - also on You Tube! Great Film.

    SCR was a hot bed of Pro Street in the mid to late eighties and California Pete owned the first Super Gas Mk2 Consul - red it was with a hole cut in the drivers side Lexan window - Some people may remember it? He also built Andy Harris's tubbed out Black Mk1 Zephyr - probably the first pro street car in the country.

    Kev Elliott of SCR sprayed my 'Rat On' Vega and Gwilliams Green Pop amoung plenty others.

    SCR no longer exists unfortunately.

    yes remember that well, got the film (great film) it was based on a continental, i remember ( & have it on dvd) it pulling out of the nats at essex 98/99 ish he give it a bit & lit the rears a bit i think, but it sounded really strange, high pitched, then again it was possesed in the film, perhaps it was the devil screaming!

    i also remember i think a feature in a mag of another one which looked very good & similar it was based on a mk1 or 2 granada if i remember rightly? anyone out there can back this up?

    Hi hotrodguy,

    If it was based on a Volvo i would think it would have been a 262, and i must admit i can see similarities.

    Cheers.
