A gift from the grave…

Stan Mason has posted race footage from Bob Engberg's Mk.II sports in-car camera. Fast and smooth in the first session on a track he had never seen.

Rest in peace Bob Engberg.

Re: Poly Green color for Trojan built Couriers

Roger has a photo of a green Mk.4 that I wouldn't have called BRG.
Interesting options if you like the color; it would stand out on a rare bird like a coupe.
Still can't ID the color or owner, in order to ask #'s.
