These old photo's are lekker they had dates at the back. 1984. I can tell you everyone entered for that race too if you wish but that's going to cost you labour plus-minus 30 mins to find the programme plus the price of a present day programme. Make it 10 bucks for programme info content plus researching-for-old-programme labourcost plus scanning charge.

I'm beginning to see the financial benifits or prospects of this !

What you say Hi-Fi ? Remember we need to buy you a set of Rostyles still and have them widened .....

KR honest man that photo of the red Datsun idling down the pitlane with those other famous cars in the background and all that the thing must be worth at least R 75. That's a priceless moment in time. The one I have of the Animal" parked must be at least R 150. You can't bring back that moment it's gone for ever but I captured it for one day maybe I can make some sheckles from it.

Listen man, I will pay you more than R75 for that picture, it has been signed by you. So what say I give you R100 and you get Hi-Fi some new pressed rims?

It would be nice if someone could dig deep in their archives to find a SA racing picture of one of these. I think this was a stunning car..........

In the early 60's Nigel Payne raced a black Volvo 544 like this called "The Black Bitch"at Killarney.

Somebody must have a picture of this car.

Being a very little guy then I can still remember that car. If I recall there was also a white one. I thought Peter Gough may have also driven one in his youth.
