someone needs to learn how to tune it.
@moe money there is no better person to tune that engine than the bloke in the drivers seat. He made every last piece of the engine himself by hand and restored the car to its former glory
you should wear a helmet otherwise your hairline's going to keep receding!
That engine looked way to good to be wasted in that - thing!
@a19012434t :o take that back!
@RedStone No! sorry mate but that's just how i see it!
Dont get me wrong as i am a petrol head and love all things mechanical but if you put that engine next to that body and took a photo i would only see the engine!
@a19012434t each to their own on how a body looks, when i see that car i see a very well designed race car for 1948. and you have to remember this is the year the war ended and is among the first rear engined race cars the world had seen inspiring the way f1 cars were about to be build. i think its gorgeous, but yes the engine is sexy, you can have one just like that from cameron engineering, malvern uk for a cool 10k :s
Sweet, I used to work on a Cooper 500 with a JAP single cylinder, they go pretty well but I wouldn't want to crash one.
@doriedd I have a 500 the blower cooper special
Awesome! I muat get to watch some hillclimbs this year, I've only seen VSCC circuit racing thus far
Watch carefully about 20 seconds in - the guy sticking his finger in the fuel tank(?) has a cigarette in the other hand.
@FosterVS dont worry its only running on methanol lol
I'd like to see some of these hillclimb events televised over here. Already a fan of the British Touring Car Championship, and the Aussie V-8 Supercars. Not a huge fan of our own NASCAR, mostly because I like road courses more than ovals.
@ori_atin we dont get much coverage our selves. apart from the goodwood hill climb festival you can find that on youtube probably
Thanks for the heads-up, I'll be looking forward to it. Don't worry, though, I'll leave it on YT..lol
@ImSmarterThanYou if it hasnt caught fire in over 50 years of hard racing it never will.
Cool vid, thanks.
