Tragic!

had it been a TGR 500 it would still be a worthwhile project . all parts are still available and the car, despite internal roll cage and external crash bars etc. , still utilises its original steering gear - itself in the 1960's being very popular for use in cooper racers.

Ideal classic for the supermarket run. Not sure this car comes from a formula that has experimented with the sophistication of rear engines but a TG 500 version would have a group of demented nutters leaping about. Worth the entrance just to watch that.
