Long shot I know, but does anyone have any pictures or information of the Grant/Stuart Eckford (father/son) R100 Super Sedan (type setup) from the late 80's, early 90's?

It was white with red/blue stripes and had HUGE spoilers and flares and I think it was featured in Fast Fours (or something equivalent) at the time. I did have a copy but god only knows where that went. I THINK the story had lots of sparks graphic'd on or something similar. From what I can remember it was extremely fast and had constant class wins etc. 99% sure it was Sydney based.

My father did a lot of work to the car at the time and this was THE reason for me getting hooked on rotor's. Would be very interested to see if anyone knows anything about this little car and where it ever got to.

Thanks in advance...

You wouldn't happen to remember what number was on the side of the car? Either way I'm pretty sure this car was advertised on My105 not so long ago so someone on here would definitely have saved the pictures 8)

Sorry Eeyore, I can see the car in my mind, but can't remember the number. Hopefully someone's got something. Thanks for the lead mate.
