Something for everyone: 20B powered Fiat 124 battles a V8 Supercar

12 June, 2017

As we hear news of regulations being relaxed for the Supercars series, our ears are pricked up a bit. Could GT-Rs really be making a comeback? How would the V8s compete?

The Jowett Jupiter turns 70

John Ball has always enjoyed tinkering with old boats and cars. He’s old enough to think having gearbox parts on newspaper on the floor of his bedroom, while the relevant car sat waiting on nail boxes, was a normal part of growing up. His passion has always tended towards old British bangers. He reckons he’s fortunate not to have got caught up in the American muscle scene.
John’s love affair with this Jupiter started in December 2015 when, with some time on his hands during a Christchurch trip, he searched online for ‘cars, before 1970 and in Christchurch’.
