    A few more from Tassie:

    Maurice Tapp & Russell Fleming.

    Not sure if Im right but from memory either Jackie or Randall Bromfield (or both?) raced one too.

    And yes streetstockL26, Garry Pendrey sure was a legend. Used to love watching him.

    Geez Ron, must have dug deep into your program archives for some of these, Never heard of Bob French, Vic Skerrat, John Hatcher, Kevin Culper, Tony Barbara or Billy Drake.

    Interesting that one, QLD 95 was always synonimous with the Late and Great Phil "Jacko" Jackson.

    To see a pic of the car I refer too, go to www.speedcardz.8m.com and check out the Liverpool Page.

    GEE I WISH With all the "Vintage" divisions now around I would love to see some vintage sedans, particularly "Minis" on our tracks again.

    Thanks for the info, oh for the days when you had 2 YES 2 types of sedans.

    Early Models - Upto 1963 including EJ Holdens, didnt matter if they were hotted up it went on age.

    Late Models - 1964 and up, even if you had a stock EH, unfortunately that was how it was.

    NSW Productions Sedans who were based out of Liverpool had at one stage 80-90 registered cars.

    I remember on a non bike program the first event was the early models sedan handicap. I have several programs where this race had 35 (not a typo) starters over 15 laps.

    That race often sorted out the men from the boys.

    Hey Scheersy, can you put some mini bodies on your Dwarf Cars and paint them like old Liverpool Dirt sedans, Peter Graham, Geoff Bundy, Barry Lewis, Phil Jacskson etc etc.

    That would be cool to watch.

    Mac
