My Grandpa Tedford had a Prefect back in the '50s. I remember going with him for a holiday at his place in Trent River. West of Havelock there was a train heading east and he let on he was racing it. Pretty exciting stuff for a little kid. Perhaps that's where I got the bug.
yes many of them back in the day -- ONe Gasser that sticks in my mind is Jimmy Oddy's (sp.?) I believe of Buffalo N.Y. who was a great runner back in the day.
A Blue Anglia that terrorized the sport in the 60's and 70's and 80's (?),
Very popular back then and were many Anglias and Prefects and the like.
LOL, indeed Doug, the F/A's were too radical for the sport and dropped if memory serves. Too damned dangerous and hard to handle.
Hillishly fun tho to watch....
