So, one day Brian turns up at my 5 acre Plot in Helderblom , where I also had a collection of various odd cars and bikes>
Say's he has purchased a Honda S600 Coupe, wants to put a Formula Atlantic Mazda Rotary Motor in it, do I have a Back Axle that would work?
I do , of course, a Chev Firenza 2.5 Axle and Diff!
Anyhow we come to an arrangement and I go to see his car, modeled on a Motorcycle Engine ( to me -Chain Drive!).
Brian Builds this Monster, and adds a Turbo to this already very quick car!
Not long after he built it, the usual?, a call from Overseas :- " I believe you have an original running Honda S600?", Name your Price!
This threw Brian into a bit of depression , he sold this very quick machine.( it was definitely , no longer original)
The next I heard of it , there was a Country road near Brits where the Police would cordon off a road , once a year and you could go and try your car out through the Speed Trap equipment.
They clocked the car in excess of 170mph , something went horribly wrong, (probably a blowout) by the time the wreckage was reached , Driver was in the road, had turned Blue, Stone Dead!
I mentioned in #6 that I would tell you about a Quick Fiat?
Brian combined a Stripped Fiat 500 Body with a Chrysler Hemi V8 from a Truck!
Pretty much sat with his upper Body sticking out the Back Window!, Automatic Box!
This was entered in the C Dragster Division and his times have never been beaten!
This is of course partially due to the fact that they cancelled the class !
Basically , Brian always won! Everyone else was battling for second place! ( In the C dragster class)
In these Chronicles of Alan, I am basically writing short excerpts from My Life and the People I associated with.
I find items on YouTube that help with the idea of the Story, they do not belong to me.
