    Then Jim Ledgerwood bought it from him, did some work on it, painted it the wild custom paint-job that it had when I bought it and put the picture of 'Fat cat' on the doors.
    Still had a Y-block in it with the wildest set of headers!

    Then I bought it and as they say: 'the rest is history'
    History Lesson ! , never knew Harry owned it ,cool stuff .Any one heard from him of late ?

    I can imagine over the last 40+ years that there would be a few.

    How about listing them here.
    Car, name year/month of mag.
    What happened to the car?
    Do you still own it?
    Has it changed or is it still as it was.
    Maybe it no longer exists.

    Lets's get this moving along with this one.



    This from May 1993.
    Shane Morgan, tune in and fess up.
    NOW aint that Non American Hot Rod for Ya . That line will stir things up a little !! hehehe

    Yup , 283 (mostly stock), glide , 4:11 8inch . drove to meremere from upper hutt and run low 13's , drove back home .

    Shit , that feature was 20 years ago .

    Gave it to my eldest boy twise , , , both times he didn't want it. After too much seperation shit and bagage tied to it , I decided to sell it on trademe. It went to wellington. That guy then (after changing stuff he shouldn't have) sold it on trademe ... to my eldest son . I tried to help him to get it back on the road (meanwhile trying to re-establish the father son relationship his mother had done so well to destroy) but that got all to hard for him so he sold it. Its now in Auckland , on the road (running decloration) and is Silver with Purple (going by the pics I've seen) flames.

    Sorry for the slow reply here Clive , been pretty much pre-occupied with the Pork Pie Charity Run.

    Seems I saw a Paul Grace car in some 85-era mags I was reviewing today.

    Also more on Tom Taylor. No pics, but some interesting letters!
