Rally - Look back

At Scrutineering before the Scottish Rally two of the tidiest and tastiest cars were Alan McMorran's Hillman Avenger (with a little help from Alan Clark) and Davie Hayton's Ford Escort Mk1 resplendent in 'The Scotsman'/Andrew Cowan colours, including the thistle on the roof, from the early 70s. 

Sadly Alan retired at the end of the second stage with the Avenger suffering from sort of mechanical malady while Davie finished 45th and 4th in class after losing 3 minutes with a puncture. 

But the stars were the cars, a real tribute to the effort and hard work of both gents. Wonderful, simply wonderful.
