I remember your Model Y, do you still own it? If not do you know if it is still around as I haven't seen it for many years. I have looked at the photos on your site and I was really pleased to see somemore pics from the Alley. Many years ago I brought one of your videos at one of the car shows. Did you go to Wheels Day in Aldershot on Good Friday last year as I'm sure I saw some of your dvds for sale there. If so are you going again this year. Here are 2 more photos of your Model Y.

I think that I've still got the magazine, I'm not to sure if the Princess was built but I seem to remember seeing a picture of the "Princess Century Supreme". I always thought a Princess would make a great funny car! :lol:

No I sold my Y in 1994 but it is still around, I last saw it a couple of years ago at the Hot Rod Drags looking much the same as when I sold it. Here it is when I had it http://www.timetraveldvds.co.uk/gallery ... index.html Yes I was at Wheelsday last year and should be there again this year selling my DVDs, thanks for posting those pics.

The speeed ramps are visable in the first photo, they don't look much but you would soon notice them at speed.

The Reliant continued to race after Screaming Alley. Its new owner painted it pink here are a couple of pics out of a magazine. It eventually got scrapped and I brought the chassis with the intention of building another van a friend finnally ended up using it for metal to reinforce the chassis on one of his projects.
