    Wink Introduction - Jeff Law

    I joined this site due to my lengthy interest in motor-racing, sparked by my employment by Bruce Watt in Palmerston North in 1959. Bruce was a well-known local identity who also raced a Minor 1000. He sold this shortly after I started wok at his shop and replaced it with a Farina A40, which (once modified for racing) was a joy to drive, something I did almost daily. He was also the Manawatu Car Club handicapper for quite a few years.
    Another motorsport identity I met through my work was the late A.G. 'Fordy' Farland, who raced a 100E Prefect with an Elva OHV head.
    I will shortly start posting some of my motorsport photos from the early 60s.

    Welcome Jeff, I have, as you are aware, posted a few of your photos already. Until this morning you were just a name that my father had referred to occasionally whenever car pics were referred to, although I was in a class with a Jeff Law at PNBHS for a year
