About three years ago I was on my way to the start of a rally in France. Near Brussels the engine made some horrible noises. I took of the cylinder head hoping the gasket was gone. Once I had the head off I could see two pistons were severly damaged. No way I could fix the car at that moment. Some friends came to the rescue. The brought their car on a trailer and took mine back home. I still could start the rally. Making a model for them was the least I could do.
Here the replica miniature rally car is finished.
This is the car at the finish

Only small changes were made:
