Last fall Greg Mandrusiak made a road trip to Buttonwillow, California to buy another Lotus 51 Formula Ford and brought it home to Kelowna in a rather unusual fashion. He says he got some strange looks from other motorists whom he went past on the highway and even a raised eyebrow from the female Canada Customs officer when he arrive at the border crossing. I wonder why ? I suppose you don’t see this sort of thing everyday.
Greg is hoping to have the restoration of one of his Lotus 51s completed in time for him to get it on track this year. In addition to restoring his Lotus collection he is also working away on getting his Crossle 30F back together so he will have it to race as well.
