CAY49K was a nice car. It seems it was originally owned by Vice Air Marshal Cyril Kay (hence the plate). His biography can be found on this site I fitted it with replacement wings, and a Megajolt ignition system which was a fantastic improvement over the old contact breaker and distributor. The engine was very much smoother and responsive. If you used a timing light on the contact breaker ignition the mark was all over the place -
I left the ond system in place and it could have been reinstated just by re-
I also fitted a reasonably decent hi fi system with an early version of an ipod reader, 4 speakers and sub woofer.
Unfortunately, I rarely drove it although it was always taxed, MOTd and insured and in fact it was a real pleasure to drive. But there is only so much time in the day!
