Seen on better days, it's not very well at the moment but will almost certainly go back on the road when I get around to it..
I'm more a cyclist though, as we don't use roads in Milton Keynes (it was built from scratch with a separate network for bikes) so this is how I get about..
Was a regular on Clubpolo for several years, they have a good annual show just gone, but i'm not about much these days. If the nippa takes an interest I could be attending many shows in the coming years though.
Location : Taunton, Somerset. I grew up in Worcestershire though and lived in Redditch until 2011.
Retro/Interesting Cars Owned : Unless we count my current drive, an '06 NC MX5 2.0 as interesting (I do!) on here, then nothing currently. But, having lost count at around 50 cars owned there has been some interesting stuff - 205 Roland Garros, Mk2 Golf GTI 8v, Mk3 Golf GTI 8v, VR6, 2 x Eunos V-Specs . . .
Shows Regularly Attended : Culmstock Wheels and the odd local show is about it for me. i.e. whatever I can convince the family to go to with me!
Retro/Interesting Cars Owned : 1991 MK2 Toyota MR2 Rev 1 1992 Fiat 126 BIS 1993 Mini Rio 2003 MK4 Golf GTI TDI Exclusive 1.9 PD150 - I guess its ok... not that interesting though really as its been the daily and workhorse for a few years now.
Shows Regularly Attended : Not many unfortunately but hoping this will change .

Shows Regularly Attended : Japfest / Japfest2 / The (Modified) Nationals / first RRG this year but hopefully will be regular.
Instagram : @freshandmintycom - car photos and family photos.
Twitter : fr€$h&m1nt¥ - mainly a feed from Instagram and my fb page.
Facebook : www.fb.com/freshandminty - purely a blog on my cars and related bikes / radio flyer / etc. basically a way for "car friends" to see what I'm up to with my car (warts and all) without having to see all my holiday / family snaps etc.
What are you hoping to do here:
I love all kinds of interesting and retro cars and styles as well as fitting universal retro parts to modern cars. Hanging around here helps to follow other peoples ups and downs of owning older cars without me getting my fingers burnt (financially) or hands greasy. Although the more I'm here the more I'm getting tempted to owning classics again.
Anything else we should know?:
Hmmm not that I can think of ...
Maybe my motto ...
Modifying unique cars to make the roads interesting
Current fleet.. '88 BMW 325i cab '95 Honda Del Sol ESi
Shows.. East Coast Retro monthly meets. Bury Retro car club. Showing the Beemer on the East Coast Retro club stand this Sunday at Roadzsta 2 custom and classic show, Weeley (nr Colchester).
Facebook.. Smart Clean Mobile Valeting
Hi all, I'm Adrian from Ipswich. Always been a fan of older cars, in particular 80's Germans. Few highlights from my former fleet.. '84 635 CSi manual, '85 728i manual, '86 Nissan Bluebird ZX Turbo saloon, couple of W124 Mercs (great cheap daily drivers), various hot hatches, you get the picture. Also into general retro stuff, do a bit of furniture upcycling and trading in items like clocks, watches, lamps etc. Main business is my mobile valeting. The one that got away, the 635i, really regret selling that car. What's next on the wish list? Really fancy a Merc coupe or a good W123, and really like the idea of a 70's Brit, either a Dolly Sprint or a P6, but both scare the bejeezus out of me in the running costs category. Only now getting into the show scene so hopefully I'll meet a few from here in the flesh over the coming months. Finally, a confession, I like banger racing. I live a short walk from Foxhall Stadium and spend many a Saturday night having a few beers at the oval. I apologise in advance to all Jag, P5, MG Magnette etc owners for this guilty pleasure! Be lucky, Ade.

What are you hoping to do here: Meet like minded car friends, get advice, oggle at cars I may one day be able to afford, and find local shows!
Anything else we should know?: I don't think so...?
