£120 - so £60 each - for a great, full-day's sport for example: East Anglian Classic Rally :)

Chris, here is a further update. DCN 869D chassis no 400290. Now resides in Loggerheads Staffordshire. I bought this earlier this year and hope to have it on the road after the winter.
More later. Robert

Except for my awesome photo above on one of Tony’s amazing “drive a steam powered traction engine to the pub with all of your friends in a trailer behind you, taking turns to steer” days :D

GUB is the white straight six that was subsequently owned by a guy called Bryden (who was on the forum). I'm not sure if he since sold it (I've a vague feeling I remember it being advertised?). Anyway, here it is at Bromley Pageant in 2010

The wheels look very similar to the JAP ones Richard Ward had on his V8 Coupe.
