History:


This is a fully Historic “FIA” spec period racing car, which I have been racing since 1990.

I hold an International Race licence and we race all over the world. We have been to Sebring in the HRSR support races to 12 Hour Sebring Race in 2000. For 4 years we have been participating ion the ISP series in South Africa every February.

The car was originally impounded by Florida State Police for running Moonshine Whisky. As a result it has a very special VIN plate signifying its time in captivity!

Present Or Future Plans:

We are presently Building a 1979 CJ7 Jeep with a 5.9 litre v8 for Hill climbing.

Final Thoughts:

I also own a 68 Camaro Convertible that I have also submitted to this site. If you would like to check-it-out go here:

My Ride’s Pictures:
68 Camaro Z28 Description of Picture on the Left:
Great Picture of the 1968 Camaro Z28 Racing. This is a true Historic Race Car as you can see on this Picture. The owner races this Car all over the world. When not racing, this Car can be used as your daily driver as can be seen in some of the other Pictures on this Site. Click on the Pic to enlarge.
Description of Picture on the Right:
Here is a Picture of the Engine of the 68 Chevy Camaro Z28. This is the EDA (In Yorkshire England) built full race Chevrolet small block, max RPM 7800. According to the owner, this Engine puts out “over 500 bhp” comfortably. It is obvious that with such power, this Car is built to race. Click on the Picture to enlarge.

68 Camaro Z28 Description of Picture on the Left:
Picture of the Front Interior of the 1968 Camaro Z28. The Interior of this Car has been modified to convert it into a racing Car. It has a Roll Cage built inside and the Dashboard has been modified to accommodate the necessary Gauges and Switches. It’s obvious that the Seats as well as the Steering Wheel are not the originals, they have been replaced for racing safety and comfort. Click on the Picture to enlarge.
Description of Picture on the Right:
Front Picture of the 68 Chevy Camaro Z28. Even though on this Picture the Car is not in Racing mode, it still looks fast and powerful. The wide and low to the ground stance gives it a real mean look. I am sure that this Car turns a lot of heads even without any of the Racing Decals. Click on this Picture to enlarge.

Rear Picture of the 1968 Camaro Z28. This Picture shows how clean looking this Car is. Apart from the chrome around the Rear Lights, the Rear of this Race Car has no other decorations… No Decals, Stripes or Art of any kind. But I still think that it looks beautiful. Click on this Pic to enlarge.
