That is just STUNNING Nicci, it really looks like something from the era and well done building it not to be the fastest but rather era correct !

Awesome Nicci.

Are you going to put Oom Koos's name on it? When will we see it on the track?

Thanks, but this would not have been possible without all the help from you guys.

Oom Koos's name will be on the car. The period sponsors' names will also be done soon. I must admit this was a costly exersise for me but worth every sent. I will hopefully attend the open practice on 13 October and then try and do the race on 14 November.
Cheers

Hi Kr.

What's going on on the 23 rd? I thought the next race is only in November.

Thanks ZA Perana

I one is very critical, then there are a few things that could have been done better but I am very proud of it as is.

Hi there guys! Sorry to come in so late on this Celica issue. I'm new to the Forum. I have an old scrapbook dating back to 1969 with various pics of VARIOUS Celicas--driven by various combo's of racers eg. Porter/Adler; Mortimer /Swanepoel(Chris); Swanepoel (Koos)/La Reservee; Cloete/Swanepoel(Chris). Pics of Celicas running neck and neck in colour, Celicas leading the Mazda RX-2 and pics autographed by Oom Koos & Geoff Mortimer. By the way,I supplied Jannie v. A. with lots of pics of this Mazda that he's bought-even the real autographs of Takechi & Katayama! Anyone on the East Rand that can help to scan these pics for everyone to see ? (My scanner is broken! :oops:)
