Re: Let's discuss the KOORNWINDER KAR...

No, I'm not surprised if I see on eBay a so-called copy of the Kar but I'm flabbergasted if the sellers are so shameless to call it Koornwinder Kars. Well if it is a rainy afternoon and I have some time I force, sometimes with eBay's VeRO Program, the sellers to cancel their auctions but it is not r...

Re: Let's discuss the KOORNWINDER KAR...

Ken Brooke lectured in Dublin early 1974 and performed the Kar. He had stickers on it to give it personality, and if I remember correctly the roof had a sticker that looked like the RAF symbol (concentric circles). A sticker with a different number on each side of the Kar was to confuse the judges ...
