Re: theTRUTH

Hey Bones,
That's a great idea of Russell's. Magirus Deutz Diesel,V8, pre 1987, air cooled, you will just need to fit carburettors and spark plugs and you will be able to run A-CG or F:-))))))))

Alan Burgess competed at lake gairdner in 1991 with a flathead powered A model roadster I think it ran 80+mph but there is nothing about him in the meeting report only a pic of the car. He should have been a member to compete but his name dose not appear in the members list. bob
