    One of my retired neihbors had the car for 40 years hoping someday to restore and race it. He ran a rear engine dragster in the 70's. He lived in the same area of arizona and race a flat head a roadster his name was Clyde Trampp > He wants her to be restored to her former glory and thats what we have planned !

  10. Just so you know it was Hi Ho Silver, not Hi o Silver - they were just getting creative with the spelling, using the H for both .....

    and Lopers was Little Hoss (not horse) and the later Little hoss Too - which was the first unblown Anglia in the 9's

    I'm trying to help you here, so please take it that way, okay? If you continue to do search's, you might consider using the actual name;
    "Hi Ho Silver". That "H" in front of the "I" and the "O" is supposed to be used for both words.... (long time Lone Ranger fan...)


    Don is too quick for me... :)

  15. LOL, Little Hoss is right - but you posted Little HORSE :D

    Oh and a period or two would make your posts easier to read as well.
    Hope you can come up with some pictures of it in original form, I'd love to see them!

    Neat find, a lot of the Prefects got the glass Anglia fronts. As said, nice to see one with the Prefect front on.

    Hi, Terry
    How's the rebuild going? The Valenzuela's are eager to see it, if you get a chance call Bob. Thanks!
