The results of a misspent teenage youth 40 odd years ago paying endless visits to Connoisseur Car Books in Chiswick buying books on US muscle cars, and having monthly hot rod and muscle car mags on subscription posted in from the USA boxedin

I'm interested to know where you're suddenly finding all the amazing pics, P5BNij. For ages, just the odd picture, usually of a dirty BR diesel which a Cortina Mk2 or something had happened to photobomb. Then suddenly, as Volume 1 draws to a close, you fill it with this stuff!

Good work thumbupbeer

Just a by product of all the er... 'research' I'm doing into buying and owning a rumbling yanky V8 really! I usually get two or three notification emails a day from pinterest showing hundreds if not thousands of images of old cars and period advertising etc, I skim through each one saving whatever takes my fancy then share them (or perhaps inflict them...?) on here. It's amazing what pops up if you keep your eyes peeled, with the yank car stuff there's a lot of the more recently restored / modified / hot rodded material but the period stuff is well worth a good old trawl over a cuppa / Martini / poisin of choice wink

Happened upon this recently, no info but a nice period shot...

Would you by any chance have any Challenger memories, articles, photos etc, from the late 1970s and the 80s ?
Particularly of cars in the U.K. ?

That's Billy Kydd's 'Wills Fargo' A/Altered. Kydd was from London, Ontario in Canada, and he raced that for about 12 years, holding many NSRA records, and it was the first gasoline fed Altered car to run in the 8's. I believe it still exists today.
