    Thanks to Roger Dowding for keeping it alive! My own Buckler is sitting in the shed (whoops, the poms say a shed is what you put your garden tools in) waiting for the new hard washers and hi tensile nuts and a new radiator. Brilliant summer so far here.

    Buckler DD1 -another gem from David Montgomery in the UK

    Graham A Kyle wrote " I have gleaned as much information as I could. The Buckler DD1 was driven by Jim Boyd. He also entered the Lady Wigram Trophy race with this car, and finished in 18th place. The information I have received on the car is as follows. Buckler DD1 Le Mans de Dion rear end, powered by an Coventry Climax 83 bhp stage ll alloy block FWA 1098 cc...Hope it helps, cheers from a bloody hot Sweden... "

    DD1 at Wigram

    A photo from Wigram 1957 by Tony Adams showing the DD1
    (car no. 5) with its original alloy body as it was shipped from the UK.

    Just keeping the thread alive for " Oldfart ".
    Must put the photo on Austin - Healey's too !! for the Bugeye. not one I know anything of, these days !!
    In 1960 about the only Austin Healey thing I had was a hardcover book that was a Handbook with some History of the marque my mother bought me- was rather prophetic as went on to own 2 of them and 2 more of the Mark 3 series.

    The Buckler [ Scott Wiseman ] and the Bugeye Sprite

    A note from Milan Fistonic about the above photo which has an answer to my question of where ;

    " I haven't been able to post on TRS for some time now despite logging-in several times a day.

    About the photo you put up on the Buckler thread.

    Ivy Stephenson's Buckler was No 107 at the 1960 NZGP at Ardmore but there were no Sprites entered in that race.

    In 1961 at Ardmore Scott Wiseman's Buckler was 107 and there was a 948cc Austin Healey in the entry list driven by P. Fafeita so I would guess that is when the photo was taken. ".

    I have seen the name P Fafeita mentioned in connection with other event photos with a Sprite - thanks Milan

    Neither was the Rhys Nolan car. Last year personal health, this year car health. The DD was in a different area with the F1 cars.

    Bucklers at Pukekohe 1966 and the Orchid Special

    Cannot help with the colour, except must have been a dark colour !!

    Please ignore the spelling and details on the photo, as when edited I didn't even know about the " Orchid Special ", thought it was a Buckler - the De Joux style body used.

    Some notes on this photo from Kelvin Brown - a Buckler Historian and owner - I reposted the photo recently on my facebook page and this comment was received, Thanks Kelvin.

    " The Buckler Mk.90 on the right looks like the Vic Simpkin car may be with Owen Cullen, it was at first Ford 100E then re powered with a Humber 80 engine so has raised bonnet section and front vent. Yeats with the Orchid and maybe Marshall Mk.90, but there were other Bucklers competing."

    Milan Fistonic may well have the entry list - was either an " Auckland Car Club " or " Northern Sports Car Club " National Meeting - must check my " borrowed " photos and scans..
