    Here's a couple for now, car looks as it did when previous owner had it, which is ideal for me and road rallying once the bonnet is painted.

    The car is on a different reg now but is the same car.

    It'll be interesting to see what power your engine can achieve at the wheels when it get on the RR, it sounds a good specification.

    Bottom end as I bought it. Here,s the original spec sheet for the engine as well.

    Obviously the head information on the spec sheet isn't relevant now.

    I thought that's where the name came from. You don't say if you are Policeman though.

    Nope not a policeman or anything to do with the law or the government.I work in Television so we get used to looking out for small details or something that looks different & for some reason that jumped out at me.

    I once worked in Television. The Motor Club was invited to a making of a Rally scene for the light drama series called Peak Practice which was filmed and made in the 90's in Derbyshire. They wanted around 20 Rally Cars for the day for filming and we also got paid for it which made up for a days lost revenue at work. A few of us got walk on parts on the set but my efforts must have finished up on the cutting room floor as only the Lady co driver of mine was shown on the program when it was aired on TV. My work in Television finished there.

    Is there any news on the Pinto cylinder head that you are going to fit onto the DB Pinto bottom end Simon?

    i was there with a group n escort cosworth that they were using for filming but insisted that one of their stunt men drove it as he was properly insured for it and he went and totaled it against a tree stump in chatsworth while filming and ADR motorsport got paid out in full for a new group N car
