Christ mopar you're good :) that's my late brothers little mini with my old mk2,I'd forgotten about the old sheepen rd show.....that was a nice local show......I can't thank you enough for bringing back some great memories.......I don't suppose you have pics of a red Hillman hunter street racer style & a half finished pro street mustang at the same show,but a few years later do you?.......that really would be superb......jerry

The Chrysler valiant coupe EGW 80J shown at Blake Hall was owned by Bert Veryard who was a long time member of the Australian Chrysler Club. I have an idea that it went to the Liverpool area but I may be wrong, certainly not seen it for many years. DVLA shows that its still around but now painted pink !

I take my hat off to you mopar,yeah that's my late bro's mustang......he had it for quite a while,built a hot 302/c4,then house and kids etc took over and he sold it (I think it was Kent way?) never seen it since :(

The Hillman was red,black steels and a snorkel hood scoop,two bucket seats and a cage...your basic street racer with a manual rover v8..I think it came from Suffolk way?....I traded it at the Chelsea cruise for a modified mk2 Capri with a 2.8,janspeeds,Brookland 280 wheels on p7's,smoothed out etc....the hunter was so loud inside you had to have a break every so often......but Christ it couldn't half shift :)......
