For Phil Lowe.

 Anthony Ramage has come up with another photo of Bruno Carosi's Mk.5.

Here's a few others.

It's everywhere.

 Unless there's lots of them on the prowl already.

Spotted this time by Ed at Cars on the Coast.

For what it's worth.

 

If you are like me with ankles that are seizing up to some extent then you do tend to compensate or compromise. For my needs I don't feel I'm missing out by finding "heel and toe" difficult.

What to do with your old Capri.

 

There used to be a yellow Capri kicking around Melbourne with a complete Bolwell Mk.5 front on it. I wonder where that is now.

Poor bugger.

 


Just because I like the photo.

 


This little beauty.........

........bobbed up at the All Brithish Day at The Bend. Wait a minute, how did that rough looking Morrie Minor get in, Ross Allen? I guess it's British after all.





 

Statistics.


 Amazing isn't it. The bubble must burst one day. Surely you can't keep getting a million dollars for an XYGT (can you?) I sold mine for $4500 in the 80s and thought I was doing well. There's ebb and flow. Not that long ago good Nagaris were occasionally bringing $80,000. Now $60,000 is more around the mark. Although with demand outstripping supply, that could change.

Good to catch up.

 You couldn't go to Goolwa without catching up with Fatty Finnis.

Michael left his mark on the old ProdSports days as a forceful driver of the ex-Donnelly E-type and the ex-Latham Porsche. One of my favourite memories of his racing was in his group N Mustang when he came up to lap a couple of Cooper Ss and drove straight between them without touching them but taking out both their mirrors. Ruth Franck was driving one of the Minis, not sure who was in the other one. Anyway, CAMS took a very dim view of that effort, don't know why.


SWB Citroen.

 


The new fibreglass roof would have been easy to create.

While on the subject of Citroens here's a 2CV powered Morgan copy called the "3CV".
