Yes, they were on the old forum. I have met them and the previous owner they purchased the vehicle from. I had all the guages from the dash from between ownership and gave the back to them. I can't for the life of me remember their names, they will come to me.

I remember the owner of the one in Perth being on the old forum, but not the Kiwi with the black one.

I have a red F4 kit first sold in 1996.  

I'm the third owner and it is still in the process of being built. I have all the original paperwork from when it was purchased (some docs refer to it as an XCL) and a lot of the small parts are still in the original packaging with prices.

I had photos and info up on the old nineMSN forum.

I was intending to join ECCA but now you have changed your name to PECCA I'm not sure I want to be part of a group who's acranym refers to male genitalia...  Shocked ... couldn't see myself wearing that Tshirt.

Jateureka

I would like to point out the club's name is Purvis Eureka Car Club of Australia and not any shortened version of that name.
We can not control people who use the word pecca and it's reference
The club has not and will never have a shirt made with that word on it
I would like to offer you to please reconsider your thoughts of joining this great club and attend the National Meet in Coffs Harbour this year.
This site is open to all people members or not to post and we welcome feedback and also ask for any members to please put up your hand and become a committee member such as I and many others have done (its not for the money) but for the future of these cars and for the friendship I personally have found since joining this club and I have not regretted one moment of it.
So as I have said please reconsider your joining of this club and rest assured we are a family club who welcome everyone who cares about these cars.

regards
James McLean
President
Purvis Eureka Car Club of Australia

p.s. if you would like to call me please do on 0403 179 269

Thanks for clarifying that for me.

NOwhere in the documentation supplied with my kit is it refered to as a Purvis Eureka.

I am dissapointed that the club changed its name as it seems to deminish the efforts made by later owners of the company, but I will probably still join the Purvis Eureka Car Club of Australia (PECCoA) anyway.  Wink

Hi fellas,

The reek on the website you posted Dave belongs to Allan who is from WA. His handle on MSN was Raceinvader if any of you remember.

His reek is coming along very nicely and is being wired up at the moment, I will try to get some photo's of it up on the photobucket site.

Just a point of clarification also on the Club's name change, Purvis Eureka refers to the make and model. Most of us have "Purvis Coupe" on our registration sticker, it doesn't even say Eureka anywhere  Huh?

The Lamborghini family ceased their ties to the car company of the same name in 1974 but as we know well, it's still called a Lamborghini and it in no way dishonours or diminishes the effort of the magnificent men & women who still design and make that beautiful car, just the same as our Purvis Eureka after Allan moved on.

I also like the acronym PECCoA as well, much more tasteful  Grin

P.S. I have a Sports sitting there gathering dust, a 2 year build thats taking more time that Simons..  Cry

I have a 74 sports Model, Red, and black with dragon on the bonnet registered  and on the road.
Original VW 1800 engine and gear box.
Apparently the sixth one off the production line, so I was told by someone that maintained, he worked on my car.
