I drove from Lands End to J.o.G. in the 70`s in a Ford E93A Popular in aid of Cystic Fibrosis and had to change a carb float, we found one in a scrap yard at Eccle Fechan. Some where I`ve got some shaky 8mm cine film of the lime green and purple (well it was the seventies) Pop. The trip was made possible by ESSO -my thanks to the sponsors! Good Luck lads. Phil B.

No word back from my brother yet on the car.

Can I get you to send me paper copies of all publicity and especialy anything to do with the Round Table so I can pass it on to my localRound Table lads. Most of them have had an evening at Phoenix so I think it will help to get more publicity/numbers on the day/cash!

Cheers, Jon

Phil,
The proof copy has been re-written and the book will be re-edited next week, as more of the wonderful pictures are to be used including your rail cars. As this book must be perfect before it is released. I am very pleased with how it has turned out.

Phil,
Built the lowest FWD rail car I have ever seen. This car proved that a rail car could be built low enough to be an accurate scale model well after rail racing finished. It would be a very low slot car and it perfomed very well. The armature would sometimes hit the rail.

Graham,
I raced this car for many laps during the filming of the TV programme on rail racing and it drives beautifully, it qualified in the top 3 at the Abergavenny rail race and showed how good a front wheel drive car can be.

Graham,
you designed the chassis in Phil car as what Phil did was build a copy of Sean Bug you built and turn it around the other way to make it FWD and it worked so well.
