Gary Cawthra’s Fal­con coupe is hands down one of the best-look­ing cars on the strip in New Zealand. Al­though the home­built work of art has given only a glimpse of its full po­ten­tial, it’s cur­rently un­der the knife once again. Part of the driver for the changes — ex­cuse the pun — is that Gary’s daugh­ter, Casey, is set to share driv­ing du­ties this sea­son. The mod­i­fi­ca­tions in­clude a four-speed Lenco with Lib­erty shifter and Crower clutch, re­plac­ing the three-speed Lenco, and a new in­jec­tion set-up in­clud­ing a bil­let man­i­fold. This should see the car making even more power, plus — more im­por­tant for Gary — it should be a bit more user-friendly when it comes to ser­vic­ing. We know we aren’t alone in look­ing for­ward to see­ing it on the track once more.
