Tiga back in business.

A lot going on in WA.

You'll notice in the links to the right "Kristin's Blog". That's Kristin Trappitt and his blog is exceptional. The last 3 posts are well worth a look with the Celebration of the Motor Car happening over there and the description of the vinyl wrapping of his Mark 7 certainly won me.

McLaren Flat

The run down to Glenn and Helen's and lunch on Sunday was a good day. 9 Bolwells is not a bad showing for our little group. Here's a few photos of Phil's.

Climb to the Eagle 2013

A few shots from the start by Phil.

Kapunda - Week 72

Yesterday morning a few Packards rolled into town.
It made me a bit late for my trip to Adelaide but well worth the delay. Magnificent motor cars especially the examples from the twenties and thirties.

What do I like about the Birdwood Classic?

Moments like these.

Salt Lake Milano.

Remember Simon was looking for a new body for the blue Milano?
Well, a mould has been taken from Neville D's body.
Mark at Auto Art in Moonta did the work and it's certainly impressive. A high quality mould with tooling gel. Will try and keep you posted on future progress.

Australian Classic Car's visit to Binalong Museum.

Look what they found.

Time for a Queensland car.

Stacey took these photos when he was up that way last month. He recognised this Mark 7 as the ex-Eastwood car. It's one of three belonging to Bazza Campbell.

Progress in Madrid.

Some chassis pics and a plea about gear linkage.
(Cat's out of the bag - it's going left hand drive)
Dear John,
   I never thought that the gear box linkage could be a problem for making the gear box work, please have a look at the pictures I´ve already sent to you....the pack (Eng. and gear box9 come from an old Mustang......and the standard linkage.....sits too much back and we been told that there there exist a system that we can buy and fit on top of the gear box so that´s it-......please could you help and put a biit of light about this....? 
                                                 Thanks and regards : Joe.
