Tough Aussie Torino at the drags....

I found these shots on another of our forums.
Thought you might like to see how it used to look, up until this happened about a month ago.

I'm sure it will be back for next season.
I'll see what I can find out.

Thanks for the tip, Phil.
He doesn't race out our track, so I didn't know who it was.
Now I can do a bit of Googling.

Stephen Willies Crashes Torino
Apr 24

Stephen Willies suffered a major setback to his racing, after impacting the concrete wall at the recent Nostalgia race meeting. After a normal launch in the left hand lane the rear RH cylinder (no 4 in the Big Block Ford), dropped the intake valve which forced the piston through the cylinder wall. In due course the engine dumped the entire contents of its cooling system out of the headers and through the injector hat and unfortunately, under both tyres. Stephen lost control and the car crossed the centreline impacting the wall at the 660 marker in his opponents lane.
Stephen was thankfully unhurt in the incident, but the same cannot be said for the beautiful cars body work. The chassis appears OK apart from a couple of minor dings and broken front right suspension, but the same connot be said for some of the rare front end fittings including the grille and RH headlight surround. Any body who can help source these items, please call or email [email protected].

If you want to google me, it's Stephen not Stephan (don't sweat it Phil). It looks like I have a grille lined up, so that will be the biggest headache out of the way. The guy who did my 'glass has said that the hood and guard should be able to be repaired rather than replaced which will save some time and money. I'm about to order a rotating assembly from one of the forum members here and as soon as the P-51s are available, the card gets another bashing. The car will be quicker when it returns.

This is the Torino as it used to be.
Steve, make sure you keep this thread alive, and keep us posted on the updates of the rebuild.
