Goodwood Festival of Speed 2008

Found these old pics whilst sorting some stuff-proper, proper drag cars from when the sport wasn't ruined by money.

The cacklefest on the Friday was something else-if you listen closely.......

The Golden Shower - 51 2dr Chevy Pt. 2

I managed to track down the guy who half built it originally in New York in 2007/8. This is a pic as he originally found it from an ole lady in Tennessee. The owner had died and his wife kept it for like 30 years filled with records. Neat huh??

'78 Camaro axle

4 Link and panhard rod

Airbag and 4 link brackets and axle painted

Black and red flake roof......

Now you see it.......

Now you don't.

Rebuilding the '58 283 SBC

The damnasty pinstriping is going the same way as the roof.

On all the shut edges all round the car it had this narrow glitter tape stuck on. It might have looked OK if it was lacquered over but it wasn't and looked shit. So off it came. In 1" chunks......took a day and a half.

As it stands now...

Door which had a bit of ankle pop rivetted to the bottom and full of bondo. Genius.
