The look of the website. I’ve been working on converting it from it’s original form to a modern, hopefully easier to update Wordpress-driven site.

This car was originally sold in the States and raced at Nassau and some of the SCCA circuit. It was bought by Alex Seldon in 1979 and was featured in Doug Nye’s article “The Beautiful Miscalculation” in the Oct.1981 issue of Old Motor magazine. The car was sold at least twice after Seldon owned it and then it seemed to have disappeared. It finally resurfaced at this Retromobile show. 41 images
