Well, we had the car out on track for the first meeting since we shipped her in from USA. Had some issues getting the engine going, but these were resolved a few weeks prior to the first race meeting. She sounds real nice, and has got some squirt, UNFORTUNATELY, Pop's missed a gear going into a righthander, clipped the curb and spun her 540-deg and double shunted into the armco on the outside of the corner damaging the suspension uprights on both righthand corners (tie rod bolt sheared on front right, wishbone buckled on front right, radiator and oil tank somewhat compressed, right rear suspension upright bottom wishbone stay broken off, and both wheels damaged).
So looks like we're in for a few repairs before we get back out on track. But here's some before and after shots. Historic lovers may want to look away
