Targa Bambina 2009

Post by DavePoole » Thu May 28, 2009 12:26 am

Spotted this clip of a 1974 Scimitar with a Holden Commodore LS1 engine, but sadly it doesn't finish the event.

Footage of Scimitar is about 3 minutes 30 seconds into the clip.

Actually the wheels shouldn't cause any problems - the ad says it has a "wheel and gearbox censor " :lol:

cheers,

Was that the car that was featured in black and white photos in Slice at the end of last year?

I don't know about black & white photos, but it was certainly in colour on the back cover of Slice 214 (Mar - Apr 2007), with a report from NZ inside.

cheers,
