‘Peanut’ revived for the Motor Festival

phpThumb

‘Peanut’ is a 1970 Honda N360 which was brought back from the dead after being discovered at a local Victorian wrecking yard.

The car was destined for the crusher, and was found with a caved-in roof, faded rust-stained paint, flat cracked tires and a water filled engine. However, Peanut has since been restored and is looking healthier than ever.

This 2-cylinder pocket rocket has been given a new life and has been entered to compete in this year’s Geelong Revival quarter-mile sprints.

Although the mustard coloured vehicle isn’t the most powerful entrant, weighing in with a 350cc, 2-cylinder overhead valve engine, that doesn’t matter for its owner, and perfectly encapsulates what the Geelong Revival Motoring Festival is all about; a passion for all things motor.
