Re: 1963 Kadett Zwartkops

That car sounds awesome. When are you regaling us with some of your nostalgic stories again? I really enjoy reading them. Hi Craig, I am at present preparing a whole lot of short stories of the times covering each of the cars, the clever mods, the regulations and the Homologation debacles. Lots and...

Re: 1963 Kadett Zwartkops

OK so I've been out of the system for a long time....but for good reason. I had to stop my scribblings last year as I had too much on my plate to do it all properly and after looking back at all that stuff, just got the urge to do it all for real again....so I did. Please take a peek at http://yout...

Re: 1963 Kadett Zwartkops

Welcome back! So what mods have you visited on this little Kadette? Similarr to the German one? This one is a stage up on the German car running at 1273cc (German Car 1150cc), split sidedraughts to increase runner length, more head mods and an 'off the wall - leap of faith' exhaust manifold setup w...

Re: Was it the most exciting 10yrs of saloon car racing?..Ma

Hey ZA, we had an expression in the old days "right-on man" which loosely translated to todays lingo means 'cool'. Willie was a God in our times and like it or not he was a mentor to all of us. He was known as the slide rule man and one of those guys that had both the solid gut feel and technical 'n...

Re: Was it the most exciting 10yrs of saloon car racing?..Ma

Again, before we get onto the Mustangs I was thinking that we should perhaps look at the issue of excitement and what there was in those days that made things fun. :D The other night we happened to be talking about the old times in TV and the single channel in 1976…..and of course the test pattern!!...

Re: 1960's era racing v8's

Hi Grunty glad you enjoy but no info on the cars in question. Do know of the hot Mercurys of that era but what a waste to chuck them all away. You right of course too on the sound of a good 289, hate to tell you this but the best sounding car on the GT playstation is the 289 Shelby GT350 Mustang. Ha...

Re: Was it the most exciting 10yrs of saloon car racing?..Ma

So far we seem to be locked into Fords… and rightly so…. with the next one being the Mustang, the car that broke the 1:50 at Kyalami and lived below that mark for most of its time. But…. before we get there & by way of a change I would like to take a peek at the Renault R8 Gordinis, :) a car I consi...
