The informal of a fable has Glenn Torrens cerebration about but addition exercise automobile
I’ve aloof obvious that 1970s assemblage ace, the ‘flying Scotsman’ Andrew Cowan, died just lately. Whereas researching $.25 and items about Mitsubishi’s 1970s-era Lancer, I went bottomward a brace of beatnik holes on the web and obvious the account of his informal on Rallysportmag.com.
Jeez, did Cowan carve his title in ambulatory – actuality and abroad! The Southern Cross rallies of the 1970s, captivated in NSW’s littoral alpine timbers bush, have been bedeviled by Cowan. He gained the Southern Cross six instances: As soon as in an Austin and bristles instances in Mitsubishis: a Galant in 1972 (with Aussie ambulatory fable John Bryson as navigator) and once more the abutting 4 in Mitsubishi Lancers. Oh, he gained each London to Sydney rallies, too…
I’m too adolescent to just accept been acquainted of these Southern Cross contest on the time however my aboriginal automobile was a 1974 LA alternation Lancer auto – what Cowan’s Southern Cross acceptable assemblage automobiles have been congenital from – so I abstruse after of that boss Mitsi’s appalling ambulatory heritage. In actual fact, my Uncle Barry was a affiliate of Cowan’s Southern Cross abutment workforce. A couple of YouTube vids look the highlights of these rallies with these Mitsubishis – further affluence of Mazdas, Volvos, Datsuns, Peugeots and Toranas – spraying gum leaves and alluvium at mini-mulleted and moustachioed, Camel-smoking, Stubbies-wearing spectators.
(In actual fact, abounding chrome bonanza snobs don’t realise that, with international-grade ambulatory accident in our bush, there was so plentiful added to Aussie motorsport in the course of the 1970s than aloof the Ford/Holden Bathurst battles amid the Hardtops and the Hatches.)
Driving a first-shape butter-box Mitsubishi Pajero, Cowan was on the belvedere within the Paris-Dakar assemblage in 1985. He competed and gained the ’85 and ’86 Australian Wynns Safaris, too, moreover in a Pajero. Clearly, Mitsubishi was a forged with which he had ready hyperlinks as his Andrew Cowan Motorsports aggregation flourished to grow to be Mitsubishi Ralliart Europe; a drive in apple ambulatory within the 1990s and 2000s.
Anyhow, all this has prodded me into cerebration about how Mitsubishi appears to just accept achromatic again the 1980s. From the 70s Lancer and Galants; the after AWD Lancer-based EVO line; the 3000GT and of advance the Pajero, Mitsubishi, like Toyota, appears to just accept absent all its antic aptitude, acceptable a purveyor of argent and white-goods on wheels.
It’s moreover spurred me into cerebration about my aboriginal automobile; that LA-series two-door Chrysler-badged Lancer. Perhaps I ought to acquisition addition one (heck is aware of space – possibly in a afford someplace!) and restore/rebuild it to the best way I dreamed again I used to be a jailbait carrying pizzas: two carbies on a comp-and-cammed two-litre Astron, a five-speed, Scorpion or Montego auto and fish-net Recaros.
Who model that concept?
