AIR nostalgia.

Photos by Orange Photography.


This is Terry Spooner in B8/47. (above).
.......and this is a very young Keith..... or is it Claus? B8/59.
Very early sports versions - B8/47 being the very first and B8/59 being the third. In between was the Ross Bond race car, B8/55.

The first two photos are B8/60 not B8/47, Terry Spooner told me it did a 13.8 with out an LSD, fairly good for a stock 302C, was that Terry driving?
What times did B8/59 achieve, the driver looks like a teenager.
Thanks for posting John I hadn't seen those images before.

Looks like a young Claus Maluszczak. Later B8/59 ran 12.02 with straight pipes n Blue Streaks on rear? Dunno what it ran on skinnys in these early days. Too much horsepower too little tyre. Claus of course died in road accident in Victoria along with Greg Flaherty in 1986.
