A lot going on in this picture. On the left is my fathers pride and joy – the ‘Blue Avenger’ – a Hillman Avenger. On the right are two legendary engines. In the background, the ‘old’ 1600 BRM engine and in the foreground, the ‘new’ 2 litre BRM engine. That 1600 sounds like nothing else I’ve ever heard – that car and that motor drive like nothing else I’ve ever driven. Since this photo was taken, the 1600 ran into a spot of bother and is being rebuilt. The 2.0l had issues with a coolant leak – also on the road to being sorted hopefully. Fingers crossed, we’ll get the car out for a run again soon.
