    Hi Bob,thanks for the welcome.My 55 came from Invercargill at the bottom of NZ where it had been drag raced for several years
    by the owner/builder Graeme Eyles.I had just sold my previous hot rod and the 55 came up for sale.Ill see if i can get some pics up. cheers Russ

    Oh so tuff!!
    Your intro prompted a search of NZ racing. Nearest i can find it your 55 ran 11's? Some real cool cars down there, but you seem to suffer with short runoff tracks!!

    Welcome Russ

    I will be over your way end of Aug for appox 6 months...might even be longer...love the yank & rodding culture out there, been to the North Island four times in the past 5 years, stayed in Kerikeri last year for 3 months helping an ex-pat out in his garage...great place Kerikeri but a bit quiet for me....hoping to stay around Tapo area in Aug, oh I will pop into Meremere Drag strip from time to time

    Never know we might bump into each other

    Anyway enjoy the site, all the guys are great & a good place to have fun

    Ps the 55 looks real cool
    The car is open, the keys are under the dog !
