Latest from the workshop, the coupe is now equipped with Pete's spare flathead engine and Toyota box just to allow us to continue building the car ready for the arrival of the Royal Kustom tuned motor. Sorry no photo updates yet so in the meantime I'm going to post some of my favourites to keep you entertained mainly because I'm shit at telling jokes....Nath

Update 13.03.10

And the work goes on.......
The axle for Nathans coupe now has a genuine, WORKING quick change diff courtesy of Mr Jim Turnbull (no look alike diff covers here, matey!) and Pete's Roadster now sports a spiffing pair of curved Ally top hoses. Nice. J.P.

Now with the new rear frame section complete with cast lug style joints and the lower loop to follow the lines of the original frame.


Ah! back again. Been spending some time doing a BSA frame for a customer. He wanted to change the plunger rear for a rigid but wanted it to look like it was factory but with a 4" stretch and 2" lower. Pete.

It seems a long time ago we were all chillin' out in the pits, talkin' shit about how to make antique rusty tin go faster & drinkin' too much warm beer. Roll on Summer! J.P.

Not updated for a few days due to having too much fun driving around in the roadster. Great to back on the road again even if it did rain and hail for the first few days.

Got all the brakes done on the truck now so it'll come out of the workshop tomorrow and I'll be back to driving it more regularly. Oh choices choices, which one to drive tomorrow? Pete

Ok so who's going? The best thing this side of the salt flats, seriously if you've never been this is the most Rockin' hot rod event in Europe. So turn your jeans up and comb the pomade through your quiff.
Drive in movie,wall of death, dirt track oval, great band line up, soap box derby, art show and the best traditional rods you could lay your peepers on! see ya there
