6) The show must go on...

I just got back from the Classic Car show at the NEC and WOW, what a weekend, but more on that in a minute! If you remember from the previous blog that damage was going to be fixed by a company that my employer had arranged, so I went over to drop the car off on the Wednesday (1 week before the show). Here is a transcribe of the conversation: Me: "Hi, I'm here to drop off my car" Matey: *pokes damage* "I can do that, but it will be a different colour" (no self introduction)

5) Ah hello Irony...

So I haven't posted for a while, since my holiday actually! Not much has happened recently, until now! I went with some of the club members to the Go Japan! show at Brands Hatch which was excellent and will definitely be going next year. Here are a couple of photos of the car that day, more photos can be found on the thread in the forum... After some discussions it was decided that I would go to the Classic Car show at the NEC this year to help out with the stand and to sho

4) Roadtrippin'

September has come around again meaning one thing: My holiday! This year due to COVID we decided to stay within the confines of the UK and rented a cottage in the Lake District. We drove up to Stoke-on-Trent and stayed two nights with friends that we knew from China and then up to the Lakes for 7 nights. My brother lives in the Lakes, so he was our guide for a couple of days. We did the usual Wrynose and Hardknott passes (among others), but we also saw a few new things such as Cathedral cav

3) Original Prankster...

So during a few days away, the car landed at Jims for a full service, timing belt change, gearbox flush and refill and a few other jobs that Jim very kindly completed! I was very happy and impressed with Jim's service and will definitely be using him again. I just hope my wife and I didn't annoy him too much with all the chatting!  When picking up the car, Jim showed me the old bits and pieces that had been taken off, it turns out that the old timing belt was actually the original factory f

2) A clean bottom!

Over the weekend, after my shift, The engineers at work put my car up in the air to have a look underneath, we were all impressed with how it looked. I then took it home to give it a clean and a first layer of polish. I tried to get some of the scratches and marks out left by the car cover which worked to a certain extent, but will need more work and/or a professional. 1) Up we go!   2) Boot floor and fuel tank   3) Rear subframe   4) Under en

1) A New Beginning...

This is the start of a blog of my new purchase of a Nissan 300zx. I recently sold my two cars; a 1991 twin turbo manual in red and a black manual NA (Almost sold) to raise the funds for my new purchase. A few reasons convinced me that this was the right thing to do; 1) I realised I hardly ever drove both cars and when going to meetups, I always picked my red TT, 2) The wife was getting upset I was using her Audi TT for trips to the tip and other messy/dirty jobs and suggested owning on
