RotorStock 6 11-07-09

This weekend was the 6th Rotorstock event held at Santa Pod. I didn’t attend the show, but was there in the evening as I was camping over to attend Retro Show the day after. I did however make it in time to have a last walk around the pits just before everyone packed up.  Here are a few of the pics I got before the camping-carnage began!

For more info check out the Rotorstock 6 site.

The Media Bandwagon: Retro Cars August Issue

Yes, more wagons rolling! The Chevette is featured in this months RC mag. OK, so I guess it is a bit of a cheat as I shot the pics and wrote the feature, but any sort of media coverage for something you have built is awesome. I still get super stoked when I see a little 3x5cm pics of one of my cars in a mag, so a feature is a pretty big deal. Add to that the fact I got to write and shoot it then you can imagine how pleased I was when I opened it up!

I also got a mention in the Old Skool Mania show report and some of my pics are used in the Bromley Pageant report.

Did I mention how stoked I was?

In other news, if you have found your way to my blog from the link in the mag then hello! If you have any comments or suggestions hit me up at Racer_86@hotmail.com; It would be good to hear from you!

As always, check out Retro Cars mag online and even better than that, go buy a copy!

The All New XJ

Now, unless you have been living in a cave, you could not have avoided the media hype surrounding the launch of the new Jaguar XJ. Having been involved with this car over the last couple of years it was particularly exciting for me to see it launched.

And believe me when I say the hype is justified; Not only does it complete the trilogy (in line with the XK and XF) cementing the new design direction, but it also showcases just how technically advanced the company is.

Check out Jay Leno unveiling the car HERE

For more information and to have a play with the “configure your XJ” feature head over to Jaguar.co.uk.

To catch up on some of the media hype point your browser at Piston Heads

I’m sure there are going to be a lot of people who have just put a deposits down on a 7-Series with their heads in their hands…BM-double-who?

This is the New Jaguar!
