After a number of years of development and enjoyment, Dad is putting his 1965 Ginetta G4 up for sale.

Here's a video demonstrating the car's pace. After starting from last place at NJMP's Lightning circuit, the car slices through a field of 911s, 2002s, Datsun 510s, and Mustangs to take the overall lead. It turned 1:15s along the way, and that was before some effective suspension adjustments performed later!
