Welcome to the Team Wayne!

On your race car clone could you take a picture of the contingency decals. I am curious what you guys down under used for aftermarket parts. Which also baits the question of where did you guys race as there where not a lot of cities per square mile, lots of sheep and deer but few cities. I can not imagine a lot of country wide competition when it takes an hour or more to cross from south island to north.

Hi Big Dave
Import most of my parts from either Summit racing or Classic Industries direct. There are local businesses that regularly bring back containers from the US that I rely on for larger body panels as freight individually for these parts is a killer. There are 3 race tracks relatively close to Dunedin and nationally the sport is alive a well here. Haven't raced the 66 yet but do have a 71 Camaro 383 with Scat forged rotating assembly that I have just completed that I will be putting to work soon.


Cheers

Welcome Wayne. Your 66 remindes me of a car I looked at a local show that was 4 sale.

Very nice. I must admit I have a soft spot for the NASCAR or Stock Eliminator look from the 60's. Thanks for the welcome Larry.
