    His Father Godfrey was a stalwart of the Otago Sports Car Club and others - ran a Austin A90 Atlantic back in the mid - late 1950's and was an organiser of the early Dunedin Street Races - early 1950's on.
    This from the weekend 11/11/2018 .

    Roger- thank you for finding these and posting them
    Yep, not a garage queen, we were here to race..was running 1.23 all day and was running close to everyone in all 3 races.
    Best place was 4th in a handicap...no one was going to let the secretary have a moment of glory
    This makes the Monaro quicker that my XU1 V8 Torana a couple of years ago.

    Wow, those are awesome Ross! Thanks for sharing. George is really throwing it through the Puke chicane.

    What exactly is the material on the bonnet? Looks like black carpet.

    That was just thick flat black paint. Hid a lot of the transition with the hood scoop.

    Great pics, thanks Ross for sharing them.
