    IIRC it was named thus because the late Evan Green drove one up a mountain section of the Targa Route in the London to Sydney Rally and had quickest time of all competitors on that section. So it sort of justifies it.The book 'A Boot Full of Right Arms ' tells amazing stories of that car & rally.K

    Mind you JagV12 our local holden boffins took a lend of the Aussie public with the asthmatic torana+4.The Morgan family must still be turning in their graves(the dead ones obviously).

    '71 The year of Redman's bad burns and Nino's triumph for Alfa over the Porsche machine.

    There's a couple of pieces telling the '71 story in amongst the photos on ranocchio61's link.

    Pity it was a Ferrari less year though.
