Well I have now added to my collection a new toy, yes I purchased a Mk3, but i thought what would be the best way to go, so I bought a Brame.

The car arrived and i have already observed that there is going to be a lot of work to get this car restored back to its glory days. These cars (only 15 produced) were madeup to celebrate Action Motors Suzuki winning their class at Bathurst in 1993 - and the driver at the wheel was Mark Brame (thus the cars all have a plate with Brame attached). The cars had a few mods including a leather interior and tweaks etc depending on the classifications of being a Group E or Group A model.

Once I have some new parts I will start to get the car back on the road towards the car as it should be. I will need to get the roof etc repainted and then once I have the Simmons wheel rims, I will have the centres returned to gold.

Some pics and a magazine article about the Brame and how it should look when finished

Well some work has continued, but still many things to be done, The correct wheels are now on, still had to use my older Simmons as the new set - well there is plenty of work, when someone thinks it is better to paint all the wheel silver, including the bolts etc, so bad.

The car is starting to look like a Brame now
