Reinhard Rieser writes
My own car is a Marcos 1800 IRS (4075) from 1966. In 1967 a BMW 2 Liter engine with 185 hp was fitted in the car.
About the Story from my Marcos, please have a look in the Club Magazine from Marcos Club International No.97 Autumn 2009.
There is the whole story from rebirth of 1800. The wooden chassis is new, built by myself and finally the car is now used for hill climbing.
The photo shows me on hill climbing in Steckborn CH, at Lake Constance.

Great looking car and a great photo - Thanks for sending it in.

If you want to see your car here or have any photos of Marcos (or related cars) send them to me, NOW and I promise I will post them up if good enough!.

Thanks to all for the photos sent in. I'm always in need of great images of Marcoses, whether your own car or someone else's, road or race - Keep them coming!
