Strange little cars No.15

This is the Fairthorpe Atom. I have visions of people queuing up at the showroom to put their deposit down on one of these.

2 Aussie icons.

What a sight that will be when they roll out together in angry competition with each other.

Back again.

Chas DeTomaso is an entrant in this year's Adelaide Rally.

A fine display.

At Motorclassica last Saturday. Curly took time out from his massive MGA rebuild to get down to the Exhibition Building to get a pile of photos including these Bolly ones.

The collection made all the more meritorious by the short notice to get it together. Bolwell CCA didn't get a geurnsey this year but one crowd that did was a late scratching, pulling out at the last minute. There was a vacant space and Bolly Vics filled it handsomely.

This car belongs to Kim in WA. Barry Currie has been assisting with getting it ready for the Denison foreshore sprint this weekend. What's under the bonnet certainly looks impressive.
It roared back into life about a week ago. Barry says it looks and sounds serious.

I remember the car being Sebring Orange. It belonged to Alan Blackney in about 1974 and had come to WA from the East. Alan was the WA state manager for Mullins Wheels. Perhaps the orange paint washed off when Alan's stepson took it to the bottom of the Swan River. The rebuild took about 6 years and following that it was sold to someone in Pt. Hedland and later it was sold to someone in Perth. More recent owners have been Dave Moltoni, Errol DuBoulay, who was responsible for the current blue colour (from metallic green) and then Kim.

The future of drag racing?

 This EV digger uses a clutch from a Top Fuel Harley, a big ass electric motor, an oversized drivechain, and four battery backs stuffed full of laptop batteries.
