Here's the car in 88. It was one of a new wave of Super Gassers debuting and coming together in the North at that time. I don't know if Steve Bollard quit after this car, he was running a corsair in the Street Class in the late seventies.

Any ideas on who this Firenza belongs to? Again it was photographed at York around the early nineties.

There's a drivers name on the side window but you can't read it. Perhaps Badger might be able to ID the car as its his old stomping gound or dragracerdave are you out there?

I think the guys name was Andy Bell (deff. Andy!) & the cars name was Limelight, ran an AMC motor, not seen it for a long time though.
Good to see Steve Bollards car again too!

Just had confirmation from Dave Billadeau that the lads name was ANDY SCOTT, & it was AMC powered after he bought the engine which was 'supposed' to be an ex super gas Mopar! Dave says it ran 13's but does not know where it went.

This is how the Jon Ince Firenza ended up in top end crash at Avon Park in 1993 I think.
