An early Streamliner makes it a very early Elfin of any kind as they were their first production model, making 23 of them between 1959 and 1963. This one was racing in 1960 I know. This photo was taken at a 9 chain sprint that used to be held alongside the Gawler to Tarlee Road, just near the turnoff to Kapunda. I bet not many remember that. There are 4 sportscars in this picture. Can anybody name the whole 4?The Elfin was built using the remains of an E93A Ford, so it had a 10hp side valve engine, gearbox, diff etc, even removing the torque tube and shortening the tailshaft. It still has the Anglia wheels you'll notice. It belonged to Tony Alcock. His really good mate of the time, they were apprentice mechanics together, was a friend of mine, Peter D, who incidentally is president of the SA P76 Club. Peter and Tony (Hank) used to share the driving of this little car. I don't think this practice of sharing your car with your friends has gone away much really, I recall my youngest son sharing the drives of his RX3 with his mates. What may have disappeared though is driving your race car to race meetings interstate. Anyway, Tony and Peter had this big plan to go overseas and try their luck but when the time came Peter chickened out (I can relate to that) and Tony went without him. The rest is history and Tony carved out a reasonable career in motorsport which came to an abrupt end when he was part of the Embasy Hill F1 Team when Graham Hill crashed his Piper Aztec attempting to land in the fog in North London, killing himself and Tony, along with Ray Brimble, Terry Richards, Tony Brise and Andy Smallman.
