I have decided to share some of my favourite 400 and 400r rally pics of all time.  Seeing them only heightens my enthusiasm for this truly iconic rally car.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.  Thank you.

If anyone has any favourites...400's or 400r's... please feel free to add pics if you want others to enjoy them.

These are only my personal favourites....I really love the Manta in full rally pose.

I forgot to say...if any body on here's car or members car ends up in a pic, take it that it's only a true compliment...it will mean she's a beauty indeed!!

They don't have to be out and out rally beasts.....nice 400's or 400r's in "road version form" could be shown too...pure class.

Thanks, Jason

Getting close to having back on the road, been over 2 years since last seen the highway. 

Managing to get little bits done at a time, not rushing it as I don't want to lose the mojo. Nothing to big now just a little tidy and a few minor electrical problems.

Great pictures by Chris (Mantaray) just before I picked it up from him in Nov 2013, I had the biggest grin on my face (don't do that often :blink:, if you know me :ph34r:) driving back up the M6 Coventry to St. Helens.

I am aiming for a big shakedown year for my planned trip to Germany next year in the car to Opeltreffen 2017.

This black Shell Oils 400r my personal favourite, it belongs to my friend and I have had very enjoyable spins to shows in her....she's my favourite.

This particular forest shot ticks all the boxes for me... this is the picture I love.

I also really, really love the next batch of 3 photos, they are forest pictures of what I think used to be Welsh 400r's......pure porn in my opinion anyway.1.jpg

I'm sorry, but I seriously, seriously like these Welsh forest pictures....I hope you lads like them too.

I'm thinking, which one?....can't decide....happy with either one.  Excuse me but those forest shots are absolutely the dogs bolks.

All good stuff there mate and nice one for sharing with us,i must admit I have one or two pics the same in my library,but no where near the amount you have.:thumbup

The welsh forest 400R's were owned and built by daishag who was well known on this forum,those pics were the photoshoot ones for a totalvaux feature.

Your friend with the McHale rep which is awesome belongs to Brady does it not:unsure:

Here's a contribution from me anyway.:D

This Gunmetal Grey 400R is what made me get the kit on my GTE and it was that picture, one day I will get a lamp pod fitted like that. That car is a beast under the hood as well.

Do love the black 400R, and the orange 400R was Dashigs (think I spelt that right, and a top bloke) before it moved up to Scotland for racing

The green and white one was built by me not David Davis (Daishag). He bought it from me and my brother back in 2005 and painted the back green. It's now the Fisher replica pictured by Evo3000 later in the tread.

I remember that guy Daishag, Bought a set of Mantzell door mirrors off of him through Ebay a long time back and the biggest pile of crap arrived, they looked as though they were ripped off of a car by Stevie Wonder!! totally unusable as the way they had been ripped off of the car through the screw heads and where thee used to be attached to was all cracked and split, they were so distorted the mirrors would not adjust!  Raised a case through Ebay at the time and was offered half my money back which i refused as I was looking for the full amount as was sold a pile of unuseable junk but ended up with nothing, couldn't give them away in the end and were eventually skipped.
