This week I have been thinking about…

I guess it must be because Edition 38 is only a week away now, but I have been seriously feeling MK1 Golfs recently. That is all.

Car Park Shooting

I headed out the other day to snap a quick pic for my latest RC Mag Voice mail column.  After a bit of a drive round I ended up at a local multi-storey car park. I got the snap I needed and took a couple of extras too. They are pretty lame as I had no tripod and security were on me.

I still have no good pictures of this car…

These cars need nothing more than rims n’ slam.

This is not helping me not want one.

Retro Rides Gathering 09 – 14-16-08-09

WOW. What a weekend.

It had all the ingredients a great car show should have: Cool cars, great atmosphere, good friends, sunshine and loads of beer! I’m sure it’s not legal to have as much fun in a field as we had!

I’m writing the show report for RC Mag so I’m not going to go into too much detail here.  Worse than that, you’re only going to get a couple of lame pics that I’m not going to send to the mag too.  Sorry about that.

However all is not lost; check out Retro Rides for loads of pic threads and tales of the best show weekender this year!

Here’s a few of my pics to give you an idea of how it went down:

We met:

We convoyed (right through Bristol):

We took over a petrol station:

We camped:

Twice:

We did the show:

Crowds Gathered:

Cool cars won prizes:

We hit up the Haynes Museum:

We saw drifting:

We did drifting:

We drove home, exhausted and blown away.

Project KP30: Retro Rides Gathering Prep Part #2

Well, it’s now t-minus 15 hours to kick off and the car is just about done!

I’ve spent the last couple of evenings rebuilding the front struts and changing the oil in them.

One of the valves had blown clean out of the damper tube…That’ll be why I had no damping then!

All back together:

Re-fitted the struts, checked the ride height, then changed the diff oil.

Tomorrow I need to pack, sort out some tools and wash it!

It appears all the flies in the world decided to take me on. I won.
