Hans :

This car I bought in 1986 in the USA (It still has the same paint on it).

In 2005 I came true the BJ8 register in contact with Roger Osterberg from Cambria, CA. He bought the car from the second owner and owned it for 10 years. He regrets he sold it and bought a Corvette.

With this car I have been true whole Europe.
I have driven about 100.000 miles with this car and rebuild the engine twice.

With the last rebuild by Denis Welch I used my "old" cylinder head from the race car together with a lot of other updates for road holding. That makes the engine/car very fast it makes easily 6000 rpm.

Didier :

Yes all right !!!! Bella color !!!!
