they look like Hickstead 1988 to me, the yellow T was Dave Cummings and he later swapped the V6 for a small block Chevy here's my pics from that show..

Dave,
Here are a couple o pics of "Centaur" taken outside our house about 2 Yrs. ago. An Aussie guy bought it from Fleabay to tour GB., but, he didn't realise the price of fuel. cost him a fortune, but he saved on hotel bills. He muttered something about taking it back to OZ. Don't know if he did.

some excellent info there well done, its a shame there isnt some sort of hot rod channel on tv with its own mastermind show, im sure we could get some good teams together!!

Heres a few more from, hicksted 88, (yes it is hicksted by the way v8 gasser), cant really tell you anything about any of the rods though, over to you v8 gasser??!!, yrh & surely some of these people must be recognisable?

When you say Invader, do you mean the Viva based drag car that started life as a HB?

The pink and white '57 Lincoln was featured in CC back in the mid '70s when owned by a guy named Mickey Illeka (or something like that) who ran the California Ballroom near Luton.
I crossed paths with it in the park at the Chelsea cruise in the late '70s. A mate and I staked it out until the owners appeared who then took us on a tour of London in it and then treated us to a meal at the Pizza on the Park at Hyde Park Corner ! We were only 16 or 17 at the time and found their generosity quite amazing. They the invited us to their home in Stockwell for subsequent cruise nights where we cleaned the car beforehand and stayed overnight afterwards. This couple were named Patrick Quigley and Angie Britton (where are you now ?) we lost touch eventually and I next saw the car at a AAC show at Billing many years later.
As an aside, Angie recorded a single under the name Carberetta and the labels each side featured front and rear shots of the Lincoln - still have a copy along with the lapel badge and CC article. Happy times !
