Oh yeah, and I've not seen the car since he put it in the barn back in October last year. Shocked

I don't know if I posted it on here, but we've also got another Super Snipe, this one is rather different being a gasser-style car. Well cutting a long story very short the car was built in the early 1980's, did the rod & custom show scene and even featured in Street Machine magazine in 1984. The car was sold on a couple of years later and sat in a lock-up until earlier this year when we bought it.

The car hadn't been seen or heard of for what must have been 15-20 years and today for the first time it has kind of breathed again...... popped, farted (can I say that on here) and Rolling Eyes Shocked Confused

Will it make the Street Rod Nationals at Trinity Park next weekend? We'll have to see.

I thought you might like to see this Super Snipe that I carried out quite extensive restoration work on recently.

You might recognise the car even though it had been in the owners garage for the last fifteen years. (If you're into Humbers, then you will probably know who the owner is).




This is how it looked during the strip stage.

Would that belong to a certain Mr Clark by any chances? Cool
