I remember the crash, and the pix of her wrapped around the post way back, a true trubute to the car, and you and your team for bringing her back. Great stuff. Ironic seeing "Hyundai" livery.
Hyundai pays the bills. Ha Ha

Interesting front bonnet: MkII or '68-'69 MkI style "wheel" cover instead of the split vents that MkIs and our GTs have.

Neil - everything is good. Going to be a Grandpa early next year. Took the year off from racing the 510. I did win the season championship last year for the u2 group. Still have room for more trophies in the bookcase. We'll be back in 2011 with the Datsun but on a reduced level. Because:

I bought a Vintage 360 Sprinter, which is being restored over the winter. Will race with the West Coast Vintage Sprint Racers on 8 different tracks in Oregon and Washington. Most of which are at least 300 miles from home. 6 are paved from 3/8 to 1/2 mile and two are dirt 3/8 tracks. Although my car was originally a slant nose Roof Wing car, the vintage guys don't run with wings and I will be putting a more traditional "Indy Roadster" style front end on it. Motor is 358 c.i. and runs a fuel injection system from Australia. 1500# car with 450 h.p. on ethanol. Been told the rate of acceleration is pretty much like a Can-Am car. But that doesn't last long with only 1 gear. Plenty fast for a few hundred feet.

My friend Tom is letting me run his this year on practice days. So I will be "more ready" to play hard when I get my racecar on the track next year. 17 to 22 second laps are a lot harder to do "right" than I expected. But I'm up to the challaenge.

Leaving for Rally V in the morning. 3300 miles to the Right Coast.

Keep us posted with your race results.

Jeff
