And When The Sun Does Shine

And When The Sun Does Shine

In case you were wondering , the MILF was saying...

' are those OG BRM's '

And When The Sun Does Shine

Standby For Action !

As VW Action gets nearer , we decided that the persistent crank seal ( or so we thought ) oil leak on Randy's 62 , would need attention before racing . So last night we pulled the motor , for inspection .

But it wasn't the crank seal , a gallery plug had worked loose , as the original builder of the engine ( not me ) , had not lock tighted it .

So with that problem fixed , a little rocker side play adjustment , and a bit of tuning , Randy is ready for some drag racing !!

Standby For Action !

Walters Haulter

We Don't Just Do Sunshine !

By comparison to sunny Sunday , here are some shot's at club HQ last week , when Walter from ' The Bugbox ' trailered over a Razor Edge for Alex ( Defcon3 ) .

Decisions, decisions...

Which one would you choose?

Not just VW's at Goodwood!

Some lovely Porsche's on display at the Goodwood Breakfast Club.

' The Breakfast Club '

Once a year , at Goodwood racing circuit , here in the UK , they hold a German car ' Breakfast Club ' . Neal Anderson attended on his own last year , and told us it was a MUST attend meeting for this year , boy he wasn't wrong !

An early start was required , due to how jam packed the event gets , so we gathered at the workshop at 6.30 , and journeyed along the excellent roads to Goodwood , comprising of lovely clear sections of dual carriageway , with dividing roundabouts , great for individual stretches of ' drag strip ' .

The sun shone ( at last ) , my friend Craig bought along a new R8 Audi for a RIPP , to see that gunning along with the VW's was a great laugh . His Australian passenger and mate , couldn't believe how fast the VW's were , ha ha !

A great day , more 911's of every kind you could think of , plus rare BMW's , DTM Merc's , every kind of German vehicle , plus plenty of Ripping !
