Here's some pics of Geoff Jago and his T taken in the 60s and given to Roy Morris who borrowed the T for a few weeks taking it up to the Midlands with the idea of marketing it there but there was little interest at the time and it didn't happen.........does anybody know if this car is still about?

dont know if its still about but i do know that my body shell was taken from the same mould. jago enterprises (the company that now owns the rights to all jago products might know (they were a great help in identifying the build date (tax exempt)of my jeep)

Can you imagine the effect of seeing that on the road back in '67 :eek:
I'm lucky enough to live near Chichester, where Geof and Richrad Parkes set up 'The Rodding Scene' building and I used to be a regular visitor over there from about 74/5 .
We owe a huge debt to Geof as a huge pioneer of rodding in this country and being prepared to set up a business building rods when nobody even knew what they were.

That wouldnt look too out of place these days, what with period style hot rods in trend right now. Must say that was one of the better looking ones, many that did get built were way off the mark. So, where IS that now, be nice to find it !

Have to say that it looks best in the very first pic, with the rear white walls and roof up. The roll bar, lettering, decals and different rear wheels has killed it a little for me now :(
