I was amazed to see that Al O'Connor is still racing this machine today, now I believe in the Outlaw Anglia class-figures, right? Back in the day, I seem to remember this famous machine used to run in Competition Altered, along with many other memorable dragsters, all of which made a major impression on this impressionable youth! Just the archetypal Brit hot rod on the clasic Brit dragstrip, well Northampton ain't California, neither's Bournemouth but screw it, you gotta work with what you got. I do apologize if I've got my facts wrong about these earlier drag racing teams, I was a keen spectator at the Pod in the late 70s/early 80s, and thought it would be good to bring some of these pics to the bastardos blog.
