The same madness from the past engineered this Fiat geared by a huge VW tranny/engine but, this time, i cames from England. A land of true automotive enthusiats, thrust me...

I won a show 'n' shine award : the second Type I ! It was a great pleasure for me, my family and my friends !

I have already ran several quarter miles at Santa Pod. I performed about 17 seconds a run. But this time the tree was switched off and Dyno Don, the speaker said "This Oval is really nice !". Can I believe a guy who sounded many of past Californian Bug-In ? ;-)

(Yes ! It's Ron Flemming behind me !)

 

Thanx to all the staff for this honor and mainly for this great event dedicated the legend of the Bug-In. Many thanks to bring this piece of the Californian Look to us, in Europe !
