Shows Regularly Attended : I get out to various local Worcestershire classic car meets, but not as often as I'd like! I'm looking forward to the gathering
What are you hoping to do here: I'm here to read some awesome build threads and be inspired While it's cool to see mega money high end builds, it's really nice to be here reading about old fashioned hard work and ingenuity to solve problems and build interesting cars. Also I suppose I'm here to ramble aimless about my own car ownership experiences!
Anything else we should know?: I do freelance video production for a living, and despite being involved in the industry for ~8 years I've still never got round to making a decent car based video. One day, one day…..
Vehicles: '74 MK II Ford Capri (daily), '87 Bedford CF2 Ambulance camper (weekender!)
Shows: whatever I can get to as the bulk of my work is in the summer months. Going to Powderham Classic in July (at Powderham castle just outside Exeter), and I really like the retro show at Santa Pod.
Why am I here: I just love looking at cars, talking about cars...cars, mmmmm
What are you hoping to do here: Meet new people, friends, help out with odd ball jobs and maybe earn some beer tokens/favours along the way
Anything else we should know?: I run my own engineering buisness. Predominantly Inland Marine engineering (narrowboats and such like where we're regarded as one of the leading experts in the country) but also general engineering, fabrication, machining and whatever else comes along to pay the bills. Moving gradually more into automotive work (wheels, custom pcd adaptors, machinig etc)
love retrorides and like to post were and when I can and can usually find me lurking somewere I'm a huge fan of the blue oval but have a wide range of taste with classics and have always owned turbo,d cars

All of these are updated in my signature links, and on my bookface page.
