Hello, yes, they certainly are epic motor cars - what a stunning collection! I'm sure that at least one of them must have belonged to a vicar ;-0

P.S. Some of the topics seem to be permanently locked which only the site admin (Mr Duvel et al) would know about.

Genuine Group A Race Car Volvo 360 this is a great little car with loads of racing history. 1984 this car was originally brought to Australia buy Volvo as a test car for Australian market . it was than used by Volvo Australia to break a load of 24hr records at surfers paradise raceway. 1985 the car was than turned into a group a race car and campaigned by Mike MInear and competed in 12 rounds of the Australian touring car championship including the sandown 500 . 1986 the car was sold to Russell Reid and turned into a rally car . it won the 1988 under 2lt Australian rally championship and was rallied up until the early 2000's I purchased the car in 2012 and to my amazement all the group a parts from 1985 were still with the car. The Car injected 2lt 5sp factory close ratio straight cut transaxle ( freshly rebuilt ) locked diff bilstein shocks 4 pot front callipers new front rotors . 2 pot rear callipers simmons wheels 4 brand new slicks has a bunch of spares including most of its rally parts comes with the original 1985 group a log book with all its history inside. the car is ready to race

Certainly last time I looked, the 24 hour records still stood. Glad to see it's going to a good home, do you intend to "museum" it or get it back competing?
