    Satans Pawn

    On the Image Gallery,one of the rod's that was highlighted was "Satans Pawn"It is shown in a nearly normal gold or yellow? It looks kind of bad.When it first came out we were driving Vauxhall Cresta's and mini Cooper's this Austin (Somerset ) came out an artwork on tyres.It had a letterbox chop and a black paintjob with blood drips all over.It was subtle NOT It was featured in the mags ,of the time,but I can't even remember what time that was.Any Ideas? I,ve found some posts hinting it was scrapped which would be sacriledge.I kind of remember it was getting some major police attention,and not in a good way.Was the owner Tony Beedham,Great bit of history.Can I say badŁ$"%

    Well called,got it.What an awesome machine,looks like we're talking the early 80's,and unfortunately it seems,one way or another,its been scrapped.They are calling it the Devon/Dorset model Austin and Tony Beedham is the main man,put together in Leicester.Real shame;Ed Roth would have loved it I keep finding scraps of info,and apologies that at first some of the stuff is wrong!Seems Tony B is from Sheffield,and I found a thread from his girlfriend/wife saying this car was their transport and they used it a bunch.I,d like to know what mag it was featured in,I still think it was more black at first outing?

    Thanks Mr Coop,obviously not everyone,s cup of T,I,m with you on this one.It took total cahoonas to build this and that was not the easiest car on the planet to chop.Making it up as I go along,mlud,the engine looks jag but at some stage a Cadillac motor is mentioned?I,m guessing we're a couple of doors short from where we startedRemembering this came out 40ish years ago,it must have scared the bejasus out of the lords of the manor "at that time" Bitchin babe
