Terry Allan, want ever
happened to him or his Camaro?
||Does anyone know of Terry's
whereabouts? It would be good to know that he is still about
somewhere, and to see if he would autograph a photo. It seems
a shame that one of our V8 touring car pioneers seems to have
I know that Terry moved to the USA after
selling the Camaro to Graham Blanchard, perhaps to setup a Speed
Shop. Blanchard sold the car to Lakis Manticas. It then
may have been sold to a drag racer and I
have not heard of it since.
Terry visited Australia in the late
1970's/early 1980's as the manager of a band or rock group!!!
I believe old acquaintances such as Dave Price and Wayne Mahnken
have lost contact with him.
Ian Schilling recalls an insident involving Terry Allan:
"I remember the first time he fronted the ex Muir EH at Calder.
Head scrutineer was Headley (Deadly Headley) Thompson. The rule was
that your name could be displayed on the side of the car, x long
& 3 inches high. They had a template for goodness sake! Well the
"Y" of Terry was too deep and was below the template.
Despite much bitter argument Terry had to put a small bit of masking
tape over the bottom of the "Y" before he could
Norm Beechey's HK Monaro
Norm Beechey memorabilia Jim Reddy has sent an invoice from a purchase he made from Norm Beechey's
Speed Shop via store manager, Greg Goddard.
Greg Brewer scanned his Norm Beechey Speed Shop sticker and sent the image
I found a Norm
Beechey kids helmet in a Brunswick (where else!!) op shop. It has
Norm's autograph embossed on it.
Does anyone else have Norm Beechey
memorabilia or any other motor racing memorabilia??
McCormack Ansett Charger
had a request from the owner of the ex-John McCormack Ansett Charger sports
sedan who is looking for information to restore the car.
He asks: "We don't know what colour the car was underneath. If anyone
has a pit photo with a wheel off would help. Likewise some early shots of
the interior would suggest the dash area is still "Chrysler brown"
whilst the rest of it appears to be flat black."
If you have any information, please email me and I will pass it on to the owner.
Where are they now???
Do you know of the
whereabouts of any cars of drivers from the past? Do you have
any photos of famous cars as they are today? Restoration photos?
Does anyone know the
paint codes for any famous racing colours? How about the Shell Team
"Electric Blue" colour for instance?
search of "professional" photographers and other photographers who
contributed to motor racing magazines from the 60's and 70's period and may
wish to contribute to the website.
