Some interesting stuff turning up on this thread.
Thanks for the link to Animal and Quo Vardis etc,but I concentrating on Imp engined for the moment.
Muddy in my dim memory I think I recall a mag write-up on your dad's Midget with the Imp motor.
The restored Impluse looks superb,as an aside when I first moved to Hertfordshire in the early '80s the company I worked for rented 4 Whitehall Cottages at Watton at Stone for me to live in as part of the deal-It was Maurice Brierley's old place and the workshop where he created 'Methamon' was still in the back.
I got a copy of the £100 Dragster build about Mick Wheeler's Scorpion in a BDR&HR mag from 1966/67 it's in the cupboard somewhere so I'll have to dig it out when I get home in the New Year.
Cheers
Chris

I may have this completely wrong(not the first time) but was the second owner of 'Scorpion' John Rotherham and is/was he the owner of an Allard Dragon.....Avanti maybe?
Not at home at the moment so can't check.

yep he ran Scorpion in 1970 & '71 then got an Allard Dragon in '72 which he renamed Avanti
