Good to hear about your find, if you search this site and others like acceleration archive you`re bound to find quite a few pics of the car, early ones with the Jag motor & later ones with the Chevy. We had a lot of fun racing against Sue & Dave back in the `70`s and it will be good to see the car rebuilt and running again, what sort of state was it in when you found it? will you post some pics? Good luck with the rebuild.

Did you buy it from Peter? When Peter bought the rolling chassis from Sue the blown motor went to Norm, the block is now part of the back engine in Norms Two Much dragster. Norms having internet problems and is currently offline but he asked me to pass on his telephone number, can you email me at wilcor@budroyal.freeserve.co.uk for it.

You mentioned the canopy. Back in late 82 I was dropping a block off at Daves and at the time he was making the canopy, in the kitchen.

Got any pictures of the chassis?

What do you plan to do with the car?
