Who remembers Leo Geoghegan???

I am sure those of you who, like me, did most of their growing up in the 70's will. These were the glory days of Group C racing where you could watch a Coralla being overtaken by a Celica which was in turn being overtaken by a Falcon. And this all happened while all three roared down Conrod Straight.

However, I digress. I was tickled pink that Valiant mad BJ brought his 1970 VG Pacer into the showroom for me to have a look at. Gone is the Hemi 245 under the hood and it has been replaced by a very tough 408 (stroked 360)...and it sounds superb. The quality of the build is excellent and is a reflection of five years of toil by BJ.

This is a great tribute to the heyday of Chrysler Valiant racing and it sure brought a smile to this old Valiant fan. Well done BJ!

Cheers Leon

PS - My fondness for Valiants can be traced back to my childhood. I learned to drive in the family VG Valiant in my early teens and spent my senior high school years driving their Charger.
