Hi all,just wondering,i know some of you out there are old enough to probably remember this.....
My dad used to tell me about a car that was built by dj john dodd,i think back in the seventies.
He just found some of the old photo's he had of it and it got my inquisitive side out agian....
It always fascinated me when he told me about it,he said it had six slim rectangular tailpipes and looked like a capri with a stretched bonnet!
Basically the car was built around a 28-litre Spitfire Merlin v12 engine,with a specially-built auto-transmission and a one off body.
I know that in its first guise it actually caught fire,apparently when he was being chased by police or something,and then was re-built with a really ugly body,including eight headlights and other daft stuff like that.
I know that there was a big court case about the fact he had mounted a modified rolls-royce grill on the front.
Love the polished slot-mags in fact I kinda like it from this angle,in a strecthed capri-kinda way!
These are the photo's my dad turfed out today.
Love it or hate it you have to admit that its quite a piece of kit,bet it handled like a barge!
Was fairly nippy in a straight line though according to my dad.......
