Photo By Jim Smith

"We were down in the Somerset/Dorset area and I badgered Mum and Dad to find the garage where Priddle based his cars (God knows how I knew where it was). Anyway we were lucky, the Avenger was out on the forecourt having just returned from Santa Pod the night before (which is of course where I'd preferred to have been, being a sulky teenager). No sign of Dennis or the team but there was the Funny Car on its luxury trailer (?) -hence the photo. Note: Dad had an Avenger too..!!"
