I bought a bound copy of H*t C*r mags at the weekend from 1980 only to find the mag of July1980 that I remember buying with Dave Finch's True Britt Standard on the cover.

I loved that car and to me, an 18 year old, that was a proper hot rod and I wanted it badly...

Remember the car lived in Watford for a while when it was black and flamed owned by Roy Healey (?) from Watford Rod and Custom club and I can remember where he lived because you could sometimes catch a glimpse of the car as you drove past - I still look everytime even now to see if it's still there but after nearly 30-years, it isn't!!

Anyone know what happened to it? Still about?

Picked up a June 1979 Hot Rod and Custom u.k from the "reading" room last night, it's in that too.

Just dug it out - yep that looks like a previous; yellow incarnation. Quite different to just a year later's version:

Yellow has Daimler hemi and independent front whilst the H*t C*r update has 327 Chevy and Super Bell - much prefer the latter; looks far harder. Later Black and flames only enhanced it too....

Thanks for the DVLA info too - can never remember the link to that :)
