It won two awards one being Participants Choice Runner Up...  Martin took MACABRE to shows all around the country and even abroad + many Rod Runs, Outside Shows. Cruises. Etc.  It won over50 Awards /Trophies/Prizes. Martin Showed MACABRE Between 1978 And 1986... In the late 80s Mart moved from Essex to Lancashire. (The Rossendale Valley, just north of Manchester) Mart took it to a few events while up here. The last one being York Raceway In 1996 .  Where it won Best Custom  (thats where these pictures where taken).....Martin still has MACABRE ..sitting in his garage a bit dusty and in his words "looking a bit sad".. But it still runs..  And he does plan to rebuild it. (hopefully soon)..  To as original condition as possible . After all it is an original 70s UK built Streetrod  and part of our history.. And it will be 30yrs old next year....
