Re: SAPPHIRE V8

Why is it that nowhere not one single person knows anything about the JT DEVELOPMENTS RS500 V8 SAPPHIRE.
Im sure the people that built this cars someone must still be alive to give us feedback.

It looks like the info and the people and even info on JT was wiped off the face of the earth.

Also confirmed the 35 Novel cars had the engine pushed slightly back and ha...

Re: SAPPHIRE V8

That is a very cool car, I actually prefer them to the Sierra XR8. There were a few garages/dealers that did V8 conversions on Sierra's and Sapphire's during their heyday. The Novel Ford (Paarl) conversions were the most numerous in the Cape provinces. I'm still not certain of assumption that marin...
