According to Jay, the new owner of this A2 rally car, is that it placed 4th
at 1000 Lakes in 1984 with Stig Bloomquist driving, and "competed" in the
Safari in 1984, so that jives with your documentation. The previous report
of it winning at 1000 lakes was incorrect.
The car has an cast iron engine block and cylinder head of unknown origin
at this time. ( May be from an earlier A1 car). It has the Pierburg Fuel
injection system and the other original intake manifold, and intercooler,
etc. along with the carbon fibre intake pipes, radiator shrouds, cam cover
I woke up one morning, and found this car in my garage.....now I just need
to make it run again.....in time for the August Historics.
If anyone finds any information or photos on this car (1N-YJ-81) , please
forward it to Mark Nelson or myself.
thanks a bunch
