Project Herald: All In The Details – Vintage Heuer

It was always the small details that were going to help deliver the “outlaw” or “cafe racer” image I wanted for the Herald and this is been one I’ve been waiting to do for a while; I just had to wait for the perfect watch to come along.  Unfortunately this missed the Retro Cars shoot due to a shipping delay, but here’s a few pics of my Heuer and the brushed alloy mounting plate I made up.

It had to be a Heuer simply due to the motorsport heritage and outlaw Porsche links.  It’s in perfect condition and fully working; ideal for timing those cross-city races and posing at Goodwood later in the year.

From the Archive: KPGC10 GTR

Sitting digging through some old pics I found these I shot at Retro Rides Gathering back in ’07: Alan Thomas’ KPGC10 Skyline.  This thing is the real-deal, rebuilt by ex-Nismo engineers for the Nismo festival and now living in England.  I even got to sit in it!

This had to be done!

NSU TT – Blyton Park Shakedown

My good friend and favorite Northerner Jonny (Big Dog) made it out yesterday for testing in his fresh-built NSU TT.  After being rescued from wrack and ruin in Spain and painstakingly re-built by Jonathan over the last, erm, more years than I’d like to remember, it turned its first wheel at Blyton park.  Unfortunately the day ended with an engine bearing letting go which is unpleasant, but not the end of the world…unless you’re out for your first race on the 5th May…which he is (Donington park Historics).  The only set of bearings in the UK are in the post to him as we speak:  Come on Jonny, you can get her there!!!!!!
