I have seen one cosmo in heidelberg. It is one of the filling station owners cars and it stands at the filling sation on a regular basis. Its the station close to the nice old church in the center of heidelberg.

My my! I have been away for a long time. The Heidelberg cosmo belongs to a Mr du Plessis. The other cosmo is red and could still belong to Leon Greeff of De Graafs Exhaust in Vanderhoff Rd, Pta West. Both cars are powered by Rx-2 engines. There is rumours of a third powder blue cosmo seen at Pta Cars in the Park in the 90s... :o

John, Jannie paid me a visit two weeks ago. I do not know all the detail but he is busy with a 12A peripheral port engine. The role cage is finished and the car is standing on brand new race suspension. I also know that he has sorted out the alloy rims but there is no tyres acquired yet. I suspect that the brakes have to be fitted still.
