Well I am pleased to say that a very good friend / racer has kindly lent me a gearbox. I am very grateful as I've been able to do the Silverstone classic media day where I had Andrew Jordan driving the car with very good comments on its performance & speed considering it is a original car. It will be a feature in the near future in motoring news. So please keep your eyes peeled lol. I also had a great time up in Scotland with Paul doing ford live at knockhill great fun & Mr L had a spin in the old girl see what he thought !! Well the main thing he came back with it complete & plenty of side ways action out of the hair pin lol. Now for the future a few races & track days ..... & get my own gearbox too ! I'll sort out some pictures too. 

Regards Andy

Hi Kieran not much will be changed had to fit new master switch & fire extinguisher battery connector but have engine & gearbox rebuilds still on going . Hoping to have a spare engine so I can put the original rouse spec.  (500 block & original head ) to one side.  Shall be at autosport show at the start of the year which should be great with a large collection of touring rs500's !

Once again many thanks for letting me take a seat inside. Great to meet you and chat about the car late on Sunday. 

I was overwhelmed by the smell inside! If you could bottle it and sell it, it was be an amazing magic tree, 'eau de rs500s' !

Well it's now March & already the year has been really busy. It's been nice to do the shows & have lovely feed back about my own car & everyone else's that have been present. The next event will be one of the high lights of the year being The 75th Goodwood Members Meeting where there will be a large group of " Group A " cars out together could be 10 RS 500's so plenty of photograph opportunity's. Silverstone classic should be good as usual etc I'll try & get a list up of events for the year so may be we can have some visitors. 

Regards Andy
