Not an Aussie javelin but check out 20minutes 50seconds on this old video. How not to drive your Javelin Smile The rest of the video is a fun trip back in time too. Love the old style footage and style and the cars and racing. Fun days!! Tongue

Wow is that 7 seconds? And street registered. Cool Smile My father in law raced rails back in the 70's when many of them could only just achieve that time let alone a street rego sedan

About time, I suppose...

Here's the Kleinig Hudson at Southport in 1954:


That's a rare photo of it after the body was changed. Frank bought the body off a Maserati which had been held by Customs because the importer wasn't prepared to pay the import duty or something similar. The MG chassis was narrowed, a narrowed Hudson rear end was fitted which meant the driveshaft wasn't under the driver, it was finally a single-seater and it had an independent front end from a Peugeot 203.


It was definitely a better-looking racing car in this form. But it never ran a single race.

The special lightweight battery made for it failed before the start of the Grand Prix at Southport and it was a non-runner. After that Frank refused to take the car out again.

Link to YouTube video of slogging the trusty AMX at Rob Roy Hillclimb last November in the wet. If the link does not work search 'AMX does Rob Roy Hillclimb 2020 - in the wet'. I was not alone in slipping and sliding.

I've posted this elsewhere, but it probably should go in here as well. Some semi-professional video of my Gremlin doing some 1/8th mile match racing, good thing I was quicker than my old mate in the Dodge because he got me off the line every time: 



As the commentator says, it's the fastest Gremlin on the West Coast (of Australia), not withstanding the fact that it is the only one racing over here Big smile
