41 Out Of 49 -The John Player Racing Corvair

Unread post by UNSAFE » Sat Jan 30, 2010 6:09 pm

Here's a few pages and photos of the Australian John Player racing Vair.

This magazine is about 70 pages so I just posted a few pages.

2100 Lbs and 500 Hp with a Formula chassis. I love the pic where he's roasting the back tires :burnout:

No - the pics aren't reversed- It's right hand drive

"I don't suppose anyone knows if this car is still among the living.."

Nope, the car was dismantled years ago and is long gone.
