My v8 cortina build for my dad

Post by Grant Rassie v8s son » Mon 04 Nov 2019, 22:00

Just Incase no one knows me.
I’m new to the forum but just felt I had to come out and carry on in my dads honour.
I’m Grant Rassie’s v8s son.The man who new everything about v8s.Comboys don’t ride donkeys.
Been very difficult without him but his v8 351windsor f100 is still here for me to remember him.
The last thing he knew I had was the cortina bakkie and my Xr6 falcon.I just couldn’t go on with the original uprated v6 and in my dads honour I will be putting in a 302 with a Cressida 5 speed box.Pictures will be up as I go along.

Welcome Grant. I had the pleasure of meeting your dad a couple of times and I must say that he was really passionate about his V8's and the cars that he was working on. He had a wealth of knowledge.

All the best with your bakkie. I am sure your dad will be watching proudly from above as you go along.
