Dave was an active member of the Victorian club in the 70s and 80s. He originally had a Mark 7 that was relatively distinctive with its NASA ducts in the tops of the guards, installed to direct air into the cabin to make life inside the car almost bearable. After an accident, this car was sold to make way for another Mark 7 and was recently identified as the red one advertised for sale by Barry Campbell in Queensland, now minus its NASA ducts.
This car had a number of distinctive features apart from the hard to notice work done to deal with the asymmetric nature of the original bodies. These features include the flared wheel arches, the filled in side gills (vents) and the removal of the rear number plate surround.
He sold the car in 1982 to a guy called Grant Hill who later sold it to John Suhr. Neither of these guys joined the club as far as we know. John was in the movie industry and moved to the Gold Coast some time in the 1980s where he was subsequently killed in a motorcycle accident. Nothing is known of the car since John's purchase.
Just for interest's sake here's a couple of early photos of the car at the old Lakeland hill climb .
