Great mem­o­ries

New Zealand Classic Car - - Readers’ Writes -

Great to read the ar­ti­cle on the ‘Blue Brick’ in the Fe­bru­ary is­sue. I and my fam­ily have many great mem­o­ries of this lit­tle car, as I was priv­i­leged to race this car for al­most 20 years from the early 1980s for Bruce Sut­cliffe.

It is an amaz­ing car to drive, very torquey and will­ing to rev.

It got the nick­name ‘Blue Brick’ as the orig­i­nal diff ra­tio was quite low, which lim­ited the top speed, and, after it was raised, the car was trans­formed, and we sur­prised many other com­peti­tors with the per­for­mance of the car.

It has been great to fol­low the car through its own­er­ship, and it is in good hands with Kelvin.

Gra­ham Main (sub­scriber since Is­sue No. 2) The Blue Brick looks to be Kelvin’s pride and joy, Gra­ham. It’s great to see th­ese rare ma­chines pre­served for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions to en­joy. AFW
