    I'm glad Marcus (who has it now) hasn't converted it to yet another group 4 rally replica.

    Marcus' friend Bernd took a really good plan view photo of it. I drew up the Prototype Stratos HF logo and we made it into a poster.

    I like it very much just as well and that would be a pity to convert it...
    Hope to see it in flesh sooner or later!

    Is this photo still available plus any others of this car for possible use in the 2018 calendar? (must be high definition)

    Thanks

    Remembering this thread we chatted recently with Bernard Darniche about front end and this 1977 Tour auto winner car...one of his favorite car with this front end for track stage...here shot on Castellet circuit!

    I like this one and would like to get one similar front end...an idea for a next build!

    Its the Giro front end. Gerry makes them, not cheap!. More top louvres above the headlights. Almost the same as the le-mans cars ran but the opening next to the indicator is slightly too small to fit the same lights the Le-mans cars had fitted. I'm lucky enough to have both spec front ends. The Giro is much much lighter! I will be using this one for hill climbs.

    Thank you for this helpful explanation...Have you any pics of your car's front end which it would be interesting to see!
