Project E30: The New Daily!

So, after what seemed like the longest week ever, Friday rolled round;  I got myself a Polo and a Pilot and headed North to collect my new wheels.

Fuel.

Traffic.  Lots of traffic.

Escorts.

Industry (Yeah, OK, there was a lot of traffic and nothing to do but hang of the car with my camera and talk cars…)

The car is only two owners from new and both of then were in the RAF.  The car actually still lived just down the road from an RAF base.  It was weird seeing all the military buildings, training units and families houses…The surroundings were, erm, plush to say the least.

Actual aircraft in real life:

So we made it, check the car over, thew some money about and headed home (with fingers crossed that there was enough petrol in it to make it to the first station we could find).

So what is it then?

Yeah you guessed it: An E30! (I bought the car blind and just hoped that the fact, like the Roadster and the KP, it had “86” in the plate was a good sign..it was!).

I’ve wanted one for ages and the right one came up at the right time…more to follow.  A lot more.

Outside the main hall was the club displays and the car park; always worth a mooch:

Hard Slammed MK1’s hard slammed MK1! This is commitment to LOW!

Ultimate Dubs 14-03-10 Part #1

For me, UD pretty much kicks of the shows for 2010 and in quite some style.  Indoor shows are always nice at this time of year when the weather is as reliable as, um, an old Volkswagen and it’s certainly a gentle ease-in to the show scene after a winter of hibernation.  The organisers run a strict door policy: only the sickest and most high-end cars get in, so you are always sure to see some awesome motors and some fresh metal; usually with the paint still wet from a race to meet the deadline for this weekend!

I’ll kick off with pretty much my car of the show: G-Werks fresh, 9-day built MK4 R32:

Bently paint x Lambo wheels x Porsche brakes x Air ride

Ok, I’m not on commission so we’ll move on…

MK1 Perfection. TDi power.

I was so into this Beetle, especially the Porsche seats (in MK5 GTi trim) and cage; it just worked so well!

Stay tuned for more pics soon…
