    The two Torana's of Garry Rogers and Peter Brock were Group C cars, but still fared pretty well against the Kiwi Sports Sedans, but Jim Richards in the Graeme Whincup Monza was incredibly fast.

    Looks like these two cars may have shared the same bodywork molds. Does anyone know what happened to Bruce Manon's Escort Sports Sedan? Perhaps he still owns it? It was a very quick little car, and was turbocharged at one point too.

    That Tony Rutherford turbo RX2 (#22) was good for 11.9sec 1/4 miles in the early 80s. It broke all sorts of rotary records at the time. I believe the car is now in Australia.

    We will get to that but a bit to do before that

    In photo block #54 the little cooper No. 17 (i think) looks very much like Alan Woolf,

    That Mazda was very quick, and Tony had a workshop in Barrys Point Rd Takapuna next to Manon Butler Motors. John Butler used to be with Bill Shiels in old days and then went off with Bruce and started a shop of their own. John did the mechanicals on the Mazda. It was busy little right of way with Ron Willoughby down stairs next to Graham Hughes Panelbeaters with Rutherford and his Autoshift and Manon Butler up top. Now that could be another long story.

    Some of the cars in posts 52 - 54.
