Well, not that my car nor I was ever famous  in the day, but back in 1975/76 I took this '53 and built into the standard and style of the time. Genuine BRM's, Porsche "A" brakes, seats and color, a close ratio gearbox, a BERG 1776 with heads ported by Gene. I had a lot of fun in it. In 1977 when I was driving it I was a founding member of the Der Selten Kafers.
Then I shoved it into storage,and here is how it sits today, My genuine survivor .
Unfortunately, my "today" photos exceed the maximum size to attach.

Ron and Mike,
Me, being a just a professional car restorer,  have not a clue as to how to resize the photo files, otherwise I would.
I still have the same 6 BRM's I bought off of Mike Sellers. That was a few decades ago- He was still a DVB member, not chief of police like today.

This thread is a great idea. I should have kept it but you can`t keep them all I guess. My old 64 that I bought from a guy in Valencia. He built it in the late 70`s but after moving to Valencia had no more room for it. It was a real time warp but it was underappreciated at the time. I sold it about ten years ago to buy a the 67 that Luke now owns.

This thread is a great idea.

Bryan's former car is one of my favorites ever. 

Steve, if you can't figure out the pictures, I'm sure any number of us would be happy to help with resizing, myself included.
