Speedcar fans will remember the exciting combination of South Australia's Phil March and his Nissan Powered 
Stanton SA78 Speedcar which Phil ended up winning the Australian championship for season 1985-86.
Long after the car was sold and raced by many drivers it seemed lost until current owner Scott managed to track it down
and restore it back to it's Australian title winning livery, Scott was very grateful for Phil March's help in restoring the car
giving him the opportunity to keep it period correct.
It's a credit to Scott and Phil for their attention to detail and preserving a great piece of history that could have easily been lost.
Thanks very much to Scott for the story and use of the photos it's greatly appreciated !  .
