    I remember low blow from when I was a kid going to Long Marston with my old man.
    I remember one meeting the driver kept changing the name on the side due to problems and breakages he was having and subsequent low et's. Think it went from low blow to slow blow to no blow!
    Did it run a blown v8? I seem to remember it being a v6.
    I may have some more pics of it. Will post if I find them.

    Paul Hobby built a split screen moggy with Buick 455 motor & axle, also had flip body along the lines of Pinball set up. That was probably 20 plus years ago, not sure of its whereabouts now. Pretty sure the No was LRV 47

    Will see if I can dig out some pictures

    Well, here I am,

    My favorite pickup

    Swedish one, Big block, low8's

    And Hot Lemon plus 1,

    Hot lemon is in limbo, V8wagon(retroridesforum) has it in his garage. The guy who owns it hasn't done much but there were plans. V8wagon also used to own the red smooth and lovely V8 moggy with a VW plate.

    I loved this, I had piks of you I presume at the pod, the VW plated one I spoke about earlier was there as well, Sad that it never came back. You would think having something unique that it wouldn't be targeted by kn0b heads

    Perhaps I'd better re-register as V8 Wagon on here but for now I'm still Cragars!

    Anyway, Hot Lemon's not in my garage- wish it were! That's Tony Boone's, cousin of Dan Boone who bought 2913 VW V8 Minor aka Chris Nash's Porsche India red chopped Minor off me back in 1989 - really miss that car! It's Tony that owns Hot Lemon, not me. It now has a tricker motor and much, much better chassis than it did when it was racing - which is surprising considering who built it. But then we all have to start somewhere!

    I will post up the incarnation pics of Chris car when I dig them out and scan them - from when it was yellow, chopped and 1098 powered - we were both members of the Custom Minor Club, I had a traveller back then, which I swapped for El Richie's Purple People Eater after it had been re-painted white with red flames. I stuck a 1275 in that with Sam Anker over the Christmas holidays, probably 25-years ago now.
    The incarnation snaps are pretty good - it was wide bodied once with Cragars and was on the front cover of Street Machine in '84 (I think), then Chris lowered it and narrowed it back to standard Minor wings - my favourite, which was when I had it. the last pics I have of the car are very, very sad...

    The other red one belongs to my wife Sandra and it had a twin cam Fiat in it but that may change - that's back on hold again.

    The blue stolen Pickup was originally conceived by Nick Diss also at the time of the Custom Minor Club - he ran it with Russ Smith.
    Hot Rod Enterprises built the car and I don't think Nick finished it - not unlike him....ahem...

    Nick sold it to Pop Parts Plus Julian who raced it - often against me in Chris' but Julian's was always at least a second quicker.

    Happy days,

    Cheers,

    Jon

    it ran a blown rover when it was blue then a small block (Chevy i think) when it was green.
    What ever happened to the 6 wheeled minor pick up with rover v8 in the back.The second set of wheels steered aswell.
    There was a black minor in westcliff essex back in the early 90s,back seat driven and looking stockish but lower down,was a daily driver i think.
    Also that crazy minor on a long chassis ,rover powered and t style grill and front fenders.
