Original JBA Falcon Sports was lower, smaller and sportier-looking

JBA Motors arrived on the scene several years ago with their new take on the Falcon theme, with BMW donors and a beautifully built demonstrator that impressed me greatly when I drove it for a feature in TKC Mag in 2012.

Since then they’ve kept things low-key, mainly due to Bill Willcock being busy with his recycling machine business, although a steady flow of Falcon kits has kept the moulds ticking over.

In case you are unaware the original JBA Engineering operation was based in Lancashire and run by a wonderful pair of characters More >

Every rule has its exception and in the world of motorsport the exception is the billet-weighted gearknob. The rule is to keep everything as light as possible but strangely there is a benefit to having a weighted geartknob. It has a distinct feel that makes shifting easier and smoother – and possibly quicker, but that’s down to the driver.

The latest SK51 gearknobs from MOMO are made from solid billet aluminium and are therefore heavier than standard items. Their simple ball design is actually quite ergonomic and fits naturally into the hand.

Of course MOMO has added its own distinct Italian-style with More >


For those who own or work on Type 25s, this new product from VW Heritage will be the proverbial music to your ears.

Plagued by problems, the Pierburg carburettors regularly get a bad press, and up until now the only way to fix them has been a complicated and not always successful rebuild procedure. Brand new replacements have been impossible to source.

These dark days are now over though, thanks to the hard work of the VW Heritage Product Development team. In partnership with carburettor champs Brosol, they have produced a direct replacement 2E model that is box-fresh and just waiting to More >
