Can we get some trivia going again?

    2. "This forum is designated 'Family Friendly' - (ie. we have young & impressionable readers - even if they're not Members/Posters) - therefore language must be moderated! - (how would YOU feel about YOUR 9 year old reading it?)

    3. "Use of characters (eg. #$*@!) that only 'partially' disguise an intended vulgar/offensive word(s) is unacceptable!
    If you MUST express yourself in such a manner... use ***** and let the reader's imagination 'fill in the blanks'."

I recall there was a brushed aluminium Ford oval badge, a very flat long oval that maybe went at the bottom of the front guard? I'm sure it was on my '69 MkII Cortina. '69 XW?

The XD was debuted at a Lakeside meeting, where DJ planted Paul Zacka's Gemini while he was trying to get the shitty old tyres up to temp. There was a sponsorship deal on the line with Facom, if he was able to break Bartlett's lap record during the race... he missed out, and missed out on their coin.

The first "big" race was the CRC300 at Amaroo, and he frightened the HDT there mightily.

That's right Henry - the Lakeside meet was a test to see how she'd go before the big one at Amaroo.

June 22nd. Won a Sports Sedan race and a Tourer race. I thought it might have been a round of the QTCC, which was a state-based title Dick won about 9 times.
