Great Photo of Ken Costello?

I don't have one... do you? I'm working up an article for the next newsletter that calls for a nice photo or two of Ken.

PLEASE let me know if you have one to share!

(For those who don't know, Ken is the gentleman who popularized MGB V8's in England with tremendous success in the early seventies. We were very honored to have him join us at a couple of our "British V8" meets.)

Here's the best snapshot I found in my records:

Jake Voelckers recently dug out some great photos of Costello conversions and forwarded them along... so I decided to digitize this old article and add it to the online archive: "Ken Costello and the MGB-V8" by Robin Weatherall

more on the way...

(Two more photos from Jake Voelckers' excellent photo collection!)

Here's another old article... newly digitized and uploaded to the archive:
Costello V8 Mk II, by David Michel

This article would be even better with more photos!

I know I used to have a folder full of photos of Dave's original Costello V8 Tourer... but I can't find it now. (I think the photos might have been from the eBay auction. If so, I'd prefer not to use them - at least if I can get good higher-resolution images with clearer copyright providence.)

Can you help me? Please send me your photos of Dave Michel's Costello!

If that is Dave Michel's car ( looks like it to me), then Jim Stuart will know (or can easily find out) who the new owner is.
