Wolverhampton Saloon race, October 2006

My car


Rather than repaint a Camaro, (as half the entrants seem to have done) I decided to do a car I have always wanted.

The body comes from a very little known French toy called BS, in my opinion they make the most accurate simple toys you can find

The car shown raced in the 1957 Mille Milia.


The chassis was bought from JK models and is fitted with an NC6. The whole was quite difficult because the rear is so narrow, and the wheel covers reduce the width further. Still in testing, the car handled very well.

This a weird motor I got recently, the armature has been twisted before it was rewound. I am not sure why, and what the benefit is supposed to be.
