Meanwhile, I also received a lovely message about the car from Robert Coley, who wrote: Hello, I have been reading about the Micron GT in Classic & Sports Car magazine. This car was built just down the road from me. I was 11 years old and just getting into cars. I think it was Brian's house it was built in a double garage next to the house. Like you say it did not have the Escort rear arches and I think it was mustard. The body mock up was made in the back garden from cardboard boxes and filler. The Bray brothers told me my first car repair fact, which was to fit wheel nut fits with the chamber in to the wheel. It all stuck as I now have three Porsches a 1980 911 SC; a 1970 911T which I am rebuilding and a 1983 944 Luxe under cover just waiting to be used and a low-cost 7. I just thought I would drop you a line. Cheers Rob." Well, that is of course much appreciated, so thank you for that. If anyone knows more about the Bray brothers, I'd still love to hear from you though.
