No, that's my trusty rusty trailer that I used to move Bill's car. You can see the trailer at this year's LOG. I will be towing out my Cortina Estate wagon.

Zog,

Thank you for posting the pictures. Thats the first time I have seen those British Parachute Specification seat belts on a car other than mine! The buckles are a unique design and baffle almost everyone who climbs in the passenger seat.

I bought the car from Bill a few months back. I just lifted the body from the chassis this weekend for the restoration. Good luck with your search.

John,

Thank you! I have thought about having mine re-webbed by SafeCraft, or just replacing them entirely.

I bought a new set of inertia reel belts from Ray at RD Enterprises, will install this winter.

Here's a pic of Bill slaloming it back in 1976. It was at Union 76 midwest hq in Palatine, Illinois, affectionately known as 'curb city'. I know Clark Lance can fill in some details here.

gjz30075,
Thanks for posting. I will put that picture in the scrap book. The thing still has the same glasspak muffler hanging under it!
