    Wild Ride Cortina Estate

    Can any one provide any more info on this car or its original builder?






    The car was originally built in a back garden in Watford by Chris Wicks, who I used to work with at BT.
    It had a big block Ford 427 with Cobra Jet heads.
    I believe it was raced at the Pod , North Weld etc. late 80's early 90's.
    I left BT in 88 and Chris took redundancy a few years later and started a race engineering workshop in North Watford, just in time for the big financial crash!
    Last thing I heard was he may have moved to Brighton?
    The workshop is no longer there.
    Today I just found a snippet on EuroDragster from Jan 2016 saying he had passed away.
    Any one know anything else?

    Just found out some more info.
    Chris's business was called Racing Services.
    He didn't move to Brighton, he stayed in Watford.
    Unfortunately he passed away last December after a four year battle with cancer.
    Any info about the car still appreciated.
