Rally 510 pics

Post by Tedman » 27 May 2018 22:09

Did a quick search to see if there's an existing thread but didn't find one, so thought maybe I'd start one. If there's an existing thread, please let me know and we can delete this and I can post there. Here's a few pics to start off:

This set of four snagged from the defunct DQ site. Photos supplied by Mike Friedman.

"This was taken at the "Press On Regardless" rally in November, 1981. The driver was Mike Friedman (me), and the navigator Marc Goldfarb. The car was originally prepared for racing by the Z-Center in Clifton, NJ. I converted it for rallying with the addition of taller springs, KYB rally shocks, and a skid plate. The engine used a race cam and a Weber 45 DCOE carb with higher compression pistons. The car was hard to start, then hard to stop!!Unfortunately, this car no longer exists. When last seen it was more rust than metal..."

Tedman,

This is great stuff, and to learn that this was you. We often just don't know who's behind these handles!

Link or post this whole page here:

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=15864&p=162240#p162240

That will help keep all the Rally footage together. I did edit the subject title tonight to include photos as well as video links.

As most who know me, know that rally is very close to my heart. This is a great layout, be good to have it all together.

Byron

A lot of the African Safari cars are preserved in original condition at the Nissan heritage museum in Zamma.

Thanks, Byron. I copied my post to the rally video (and now also rally photos) thread in your link and will post there from now on.
