    One guy took them all. Do you want me to keep an eye out? I still see trucks sitting around here sometimes.

    Yes please ,.but don't go out of your way, he is over there now looking in North Dakota, and I think Montana. He also has to collect my 35 pickup from Minnesota, he has my dually and trailer which I store near Phelan, CA. so he is covering a fair bit of ground. If he fails this trip I will let you know.

    That's about perfect, some of those Austin Sevens really shift and I bet that one does too.

    I like the one little rear fender to stop you wearing a hole in the elbow of your tweed jacket on right hand turns.:D

    stance from the factory ( big&littles need not apply ) came with a reasonable likeness of a 34 radiator shell, too ...

    Are you planning to build a special with it? Like a Miller FWD?

    It’s being sold by the Citroen museum - just thought it worth sharing here is all.

    It's an Austin Seven Special. looks to have been built on a 'long wheelbase' 1932 onwards chassis. The bodywork looks like it's a piece of David Gregson's work.

    I realize that it's been a while since this was posted, but thought I'd add to it anyway.... I started my 20+ year career in vintage road racing at Laguna Seca back in '92. I had never raced on a curvy track before, and was racing a critter that was anything but nice handling. That was with the Ak Miller's El Caballo. I knew nobody, and nobody knew me. I simply picked out someone who looked nice, and asked them to show me the ropes. That person was John Buddenbaum, and he is still a friend. He was Terry Buffum's (another good friend) driver of choice in the Parkinson Jag, as well as other racers. John handled that Jag like nobodies business, and was very had to stay even close to. When I found and later purchased the Wilhelm "Jaguar Royale", it was John who got it running after many years. A side note....The Jag Royale had a Paxton blower (a whole nuther story) which we re-installed before I sold the car. I took it to Scottsdale, and was driving it into the sales building, when I idled past a father and son. The son asked his Dad, "Dad, why is that purple car making that high pitched noise?" Dads response was "Son, some people will try to sell anything. That car has a bad water pump, and rather than fix it, he selling it".......I whirled around, ready to do battle, when the wee guy on my shoulder said "Don't do it, you can't fix stupid".......I grumbled to myself and continued on....

    John in the Parkinson will be running against the Manning and Baldwin flat head powered cars at Laguna Seca Nov 11-14. The Tatum and Kurtis are out awaiting parts for rebuilds resulting from being pushed a bit too hard in August.

  22. We'll be running with the two ERA's of Dowling & McCabe. The'll be some Bugatti's and Alfa's. I don't know if Mike has been able to put Max Jamiesson's big Ford "Flathead"8BA engine back together for next week! I look forward to seeing you Terry! For the guys looking for photos of all the Del Monte Cup cars at Laguna Seca; go too Google and search 2021 RMMR and in a couple of weeks: 2021 Velocity Invitational.
