    Hello Gerald

    I just loved your article about your yellow Torana XU-1 "Love Affair with a Legend" Your XU-1 is somewhat still alive, it's in lots of pieces and a little worse for wear but it's all there including original block and head. I had the pleasure of viewing this car a year or so ago and if I didn't have my 2 Torana's I would of bought it. I have a Grey LC GTR and a Chateau Mauve LJ XU-1 that I am currently rebuilding.

    Do you happen to have any other old photo's of racing XU-1's that you can share with me?
