Car meets creator (2)

Restoration of the one and only Australian-built Broadspeed GTS is getting on well. After it had been stripped (story here) it is now painted and ready for rebuilding. Meanwhile, owner Jono Morris had a visit of the man who originally built it - Brian Foley - plus that other legendary Aussie Mini coupe builder Bill Buckle earlier this week. Jono wrote: "Hi Jeroen, I was very lucky to have both Bill Buckle and Brian Foley drop in yesterday to see the Broadspeed. We went out for lunch after and I was able to listen to some great stories about the old days and their cars. It was a very memorable day!" Isn't it great when old cars and their creators are reunited after all those years? Oh, and by the way, there is a lot more Broadspeed GT news on its way, so keep an eye on these pages if you like these cars...
