Re: Y151 - Missing ?

Darth, I learned long ago, it is all about money and self interest. So many people just don't give two sh1ts about SA motoring / racing heritage, as long as their bank balance swells..........

Re: The Forum: 2013

There used to be quite a big group who posted items related to racing. I guess once everyone has said what they want to say and have run out of pictures to post, they move on to other forums. There is a big following on Facebook in a number of SA racing categories, but I notice that this is also dwi...

Re: SIERRA XR8 RACER

Colin you are coming along nicely. It wasn't so much that I could see you coming up on me, more that I could FEEL it. A sort of uncomfortable feeling in my spine. What was your smoke issue? Were you black flagged eventually?

Opel Superboss

Some advise would be appreciated from one of you guru's.

When exactly was the Superboss (not Boss) launched (month/year)?

What was the difference in engines between the Boss and the Superboss? Was the twin cam head only developed and used on the Superboss?

Thanks

It was nice to see you out there Colin. Racing is full of setbacks and hassles, give it time and you will be smiling. Rome wasn't built in a day :?

Re: SIERRA XR8 RACER

I saw your ad and was tempted. Three problems, a) no garaging available b) fuel for racing would be huge c) my wife would go mad ;)

Re: SIERRA XR8 RACER

Colin, is that the yellow Granada raced by a guy called Neethling many years ago? Have you got pictures?
