Pic of the T and number plate with Mickey Bray before he sold it to Keith Moon

I did read on the NSRA that it was in bits in Portsmouth in 2007 if that was correct

The grille shell was for sale on here last week.

To be fair, Keith Moon wasn't a rodder, he didn't even have a driving licence, he only bought the T because it was a fun car and owned it for a short time.

Yup, I was told it's still down here in Portsmouth but virtually unrecognisable as to its origins. The guy who owns it ( Phil ) turns up at Wheelsday normally so I'll try to find out what's happening with it.

I don't know if this the kinda thing you asked for but I apparently own a '65 El Camino that Jeff Beck, the rock guitarist, used to own. I dont have any pics I'm afraid but there are a few from various Krispy Kreme meets and even a pic from the Rod and Chop show in CC last year.
Cheers, Roger

To other celebrities, there's obviously Jeff Beck, John Bonham had Andy's Instant T, and didn't Dave Lee Travis race a car called Tender Trap?
