Giocattolo owners.

It's been quite a long time since the Lions were the Bears.
But when they were, this car belonged to this show pony.
In his designer clothes (designed by himself).

Just popped up on Gumtree.

Milano roadster body on a Triumph Herald chassis in Victoria for $1500 or make an offer.

No extra charge for the race tape.

More progress.

The ultimate classic Mark 7.

Well, this is my opinion anyway. Stuart Price, in WA, has a Mk.7 that would go pretty close to that title. As well as having a grey motor, the attention to detail in the car is exceptional. Take a look.

B8/47

Rob's got his work cut out on the very first Nagari sports.

Remember it when John Allsop had it?
And then Derek, who lived at Digby used to bring it along to Easters in his area (e.g. Hamilton, Coleraine).
Bob Hampton was always up for a bit of action. This was the weekend when the local cop came out to drag race the cop car.
We miss Tony as our starter.
Anyway, I digress. Rob Wragg answered this ad.........
........and he's had it down Launceston way for a while now.
Now for a bit of serious work. Here's the chassis after it was stripped.

and more than a bit of welding.
Now looking a lot better.
And when it's all done it'll reappear in its original silver.

Ross's latest.

Ross Allen has joined the Clubbie Brigade.

"Westfield is 20 years old and only traveled 18000 kms. Drove it home from Sydney last week. Looking forward to doing Collingrove, Mallala and The Bend when the weather improves. Real fun to drive!"
Nice one Ross. Looks like we might see you over our way a bit in the future.

Gotta be quick!

This Mark 7 body mould came up on Gumtree in the Davenport area.
Unfortunately it sold straight away.

Anyone know where it's gone?

Back when it looked like an Ikara.

Mark IVs and original owners.

Well, we've ascertained that John Turner still has his.
But here's a couple that I haven't heard about for over 40 years.

(1). Ray Johnstone.
(2). Brian Whellan.
Dear little thing. (The car, not Brian.) Nagari tail lights I see.

Now, somebody please tell me whose Mk.4 this is, seen at Sandown in the 60s.

How's that for service?

Going back a bit.

This is Barry Campbell racing his TR3A in the early days of Marque Sports/ProdSports when tens of thousands of people used to turn up at Oran Park etc. So Barry has been at it for a long time, as has Matt Pintar who raced an MGB at the same time prior to taking over and developing the Bolwell Mk.7 that eventually ended up in Barry's hands.
This is how the Bolwell looked at about the time that Matt put it up for sale.
And earlier.

And this is how it looked some time later after Barry purchased it.
And later still.
And this year at Beaudesert.
And here's a picture at Amaroo simply because it's one of my favourites.
