Thanks. In those days tyres did not stick as well as they do now; this used to be a great spot for catching four-wheel drifts.

Cheers,
Pete.

Great photo, I think the ARB could do with being a bit bigger on the cobra!... the elan looks menacing in the background... :)

Excellent photo!
Are you sure the Cobra isn't a replica 'cos aren't they all....? :)
