in memory of gerry treit

Willys Wars and former Street Eliminator racer, Gerry Treit, passed away on 23 December. Before getting the racing bug, Gerry was an enthusiastic hot rodder in the Fife area of Scotland with a wicked sense of humour. Both characteristics were highly evident as his racing became more serious, and we featured the World Products 605ci Mopar-powered ’40 Willys coupe he built himself, along with the Tartan Drag’in Race Team, in the July and September issues in 2011. Our condolences go to Gerry’s wife, Dina, and all his family and friends. RIP Gerry.…

Super Comp racer, Andy Williams, passed away on 27 December. Having undergone a kidney transplant at the age of 16, Andy went on to race his ’32 roadster, Eight Mis ‘B’ Haven, and was later strapped into the Wild Child dragster. Known for his sense of humour, Andy enjoyed racing to the max and competed in Vandal in Denmark, Drachten and Hockenheim, creating some fantastic memories for those who accompanied him on his journeys. Our condolences go to Andy’s wife, Maggie, sons, Marcus and Alex, and all his family and friends. RIP Andy.…

nev mottershead

Comp Eliminator racer, Nev ‘the rev’ Mottershead, passed away on 31 December. Nev raced a Toyota Supra before progressing to the small block Chevy-powered ’69 Vauxhall Ventora we featured in the April ’12 issue. The Ventora was being upgraded to 7.50 spec for the 2020 season before circumstances dictated it wasn’t to be. A kind and gentle man, who was ever cheerful and always ready to help, Nev will be missed by all in the scene. Our condolences go to Nev’s wife, Libby, and all his family and friends.

ed and shoulders

Wow, talk about the only certainty of it all being the uncertainty. I am writing this the day after Boris Johnson announced the latest lockdown measures. Initially, it sounded like this latest regime might last until mid-February, but then this morning I heard it could be the end of February. Now, certain members of the government are talking of it running into March… Yup, uncertainty indeed, and what it will mean for this year’s show and race season remains to be seen. The only certainty we can offer is that CC will continue to bring you the up-to-date news as regular as clockwork. Every four weeks to be precise. It’s not all doom and gloom though, far from it in fact. With vaccines now being rolled out nationwide, there is hope we…

fresh approach

We are excited to show you all these new '32 Ford chassis brace kits that Joe Curtis at Fresh Reflections is producing right here in the UK. Starting with an original chassis that was 3D scanned, the parts were designed in CAD before being laser cut, de-burred, folded and TIG welded together, with some welds blended off and faux rivets installed to be in keeping with the original construction of a '32 chassis. Designed to be a direct bolt-in fit to an unboxed chassis, these are a beautiful, functional piece of hot rod chassis equipment, and cost £365 + shipping (original k-member shown in main picture not included). There are more parts in the pipeline, including a range of Model A chassis components, and we'll bring you details in due course. In the…
