Aki's ex-Oval

Bit too new to be included with the Flashback-label, but Aki's Oval was one of the nicest DKP III styled Cal Lookers built in Finland. Long time project with total body off pan restoration.

This photo was taken few weeks before it was picked up by Kobus' buddy from Belgium. At that time it had passed hands 2-3 times in Finland already and been though couple of engine/gearbox/wheels/brake-swaps. Aki kept his 13-second stroker engine, Jussi had a 1600cc turbo engine in it and in the picture it has stock pea-shooters. If I remember correctly Jussi had some plans about this Oval being the base for his current race car..

Oh, and somehow Aki's old close-ratio gearbox (built by AlhoRacing) and Gas Burners found their way to my garage :-)
