You know I had some 8mm movies I took of racing back then, but it some how got lost over time, I wish I could get it back.

Those movies were priceless, we had a lil lime and showed it to Desmond once. Would be nice to do the same again with the interested fans and aficionados. I will have to turn my house upside down to look for them.

I had some nice movies of Brodie's Space frame Lotus Elan, probably the fastest car to ever race in Trinidad.

Rezan is his son?? Wow!

We had a nickname for Zainool, it was sliders, because used to always be sliding off on a corner somewhere.

omg omg omg omg
my dad's old car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Image
he bought it from eggy
by the time he was through with it, it had a Blydenstein Stage 4R racing head on the 2279cc block
I was about 4 when they used to be working on the car in the garage. Iever time it fired up I used to run under the table cuz it was so loud :lol:

the less said about this car when he sold it, the better :evil:
Even back then I can still remember when they came and took the car away :(

at one point it was black with castrol stripes over the top, front to back, off to one side, and a big Vauxhall Griffin logo on the racing number square

at least he bought the HSR with the money

Damn.....thats a nice collection of photos.

Nice to see Desmond's famous black escort again, wow.

Those bring back awesome memories for me, I most likely was there somewhere in the crowd when all those pictures were taken.
Wow .......unbelievable.
Great job man.....where'd you get all dem pics???

Wow the famous Janspeed Datsun.....there was a guy from Holland who was trying to track down that car, he emailed me a couple of times.
You guys are bringing tears to my eyes man.......I know, i'm sick.

That was the famous Irishman, Alec Poole behind the wheel of that Datsun...for you young guys who only know about EVOs and Subarus, Google Alec Poole, you will find out who he was.

Its interesting to see what he is doing today...

Bob Howlings' Opel was abandoned at the side of the road in St Augustine....some piper / failed straightener claimed it as his own.....it's gone now :?

Eggy's old Viva GT was reportedly rotted to oblivion
Brian Ibrahim's Firenza languished for years, butchered for a V8.....I think it was eventually scrapped
There are still a few Mallock U2 chassis around

I would love to now where all the old Formula cars ended up :|

I know that Wayne Persad has been working on restoring one of the single seaters at his garage in South - practically completed a year or more ago....

Sad that so many of these machines were literally left by the wayside to disintegrate...
