Do you own or know the whereabouts of a piece of UK Drag Racing History or just want info on a particular machine.

Paul Gatty visited Fenland airfield today and just happened to bump into John Wright. He took a photo of him with his old hot rod/dragster which is in the middle of a rebuild to street use. The engine is still a Jag, it retains the Rolls Royce grille and the body is now an old Citroen with a very short pickup bed added. John originally used an Austin pickup body in 1964-'66 but this went onto a new narrowed lighter chassis in '67.

Here's Pauls pic and one taken by Ken Robbins in 1966...
