It's good eh ?
Also, search HAMB for "Essex Four" and SX4

Great work Molin ein und sexzig.
Thanks metlmunchr for the time and effort you put in on the story. And Jess, thanks for trying to crack nuts gently, but you do need a big hammer....

Excellent, and with it comes your summer.
What production car is this special based on, if any? - Jim
AH . . . yes, I should get out of bed earlier in the morning. Sometimes you just can't see for looking. Model Ts they are for sure. Thanks. - Jim
Great story T37K.

2. Is hillclimbing not auto racing?
