on long runs :>)

Richard Cropp's Blown V6 B at Beaulie, Wick didn't make it as his starter packed
up no spare and no time to fix
so he had to go in the Cortina ;>)

ATP 237V was and still is a local car to Portsmouth. Built by a couple that managed a pub near Winchester.
Ronnie is the guys name not sure of his wife's.
The Rays Rods Plymouth coupe was built by the late Al Knellor and was featured
in Rod and Custom
. It was built from the remains of the Surrey Street Rodders
project car as displayed at the famous USG show.
The Blue 1947 Morris E van in
background belonged to Ken Brittain, it was powered by a pinto and had a full
feature in the
October 1981 edition of Rod and Custom. Ken still owns the
van in fact to this day and races it in the Rover V8 challenge.
