I have a second J2 project car (somebody stop me!)

1933 MG J2
J3721
AXF 910

Mike Hawke's book states that there is a photo "on file" of this car at full flight in a race with competition numbers.

Where should I start the search for the photo?

Assuming the MMM Register can't point you in the right direction?

I have also sent an email to the MGCC and Triple M. But, I've had good luck here in the past.

Are you a member of the MGCC and Triple M? I am surprised they cannot be of assistance?

Mike Hawke's son Jeremy is still an active member of the MMM Register, posting on their forum as JMH. He'd probably be the best one to ask. :)

That'll be me then! "On file" could mean with the MMM Register, or in with all his own research. I'll have a look later today & get back to you. :wave:

SgtBob: I have found the photo & sent you a pm.

Thanks for the pm and a most hardy thanks for finding the photo!

As of yesterday, J3721 is in the garage at my house. Now we start working on the chassis.

I received the photo by email today from Jeremy. What can I say, I'm absolutely speechless. Thanks!

Can you share the photo? I am sure we are all curious.

Can we see the subject of this thread? On another matter are there any plans to update the K3 Dossier? It is hard to imagine it is nearly 20 years since publication of your father's definitive history.

Here's a try - but like many before me it may not work as it's the first time I've tried it!

Alas, we don't have a J2 ripping round Brooklands or Donnington, but on a rally. As the car has lost it's original swept wings & going by the cars in the background, I'd say that it's probably early 50s?

I'm actually very excited about seeing the cycle wings on the car. It was my plan to build it that way, despite being a factory swept wing J2. Now I'm guilt free!
