Hope all is well.
Not much happened with me since the Chryslers at Brooklands show at the end of May -one of my favourite venues for a car show. I took the trusty Barracuda but she didn’t seem to run right, so have ordered a new carburettor. The show was very well attended with perfect weather and a whole host of gleaming muscle cars. For instance, a great looking 1970 Cuda convertible with an added Hemi engine came along, the car was used in the Johnny Depp movie Dark Shadow. Another odd-ball car was a 1973 Chrysler Valiant Charger with a 225ci six banger from South Africa, I also warmed to a very nice EV2 orange 1970 Challenger R/T.
However, the car that left me gobsmacked was a Chevrolet COPO Camaro, finished in black with a 427ci V8, Muncie manual 4-speed gearbox and 12 bolt rear end. The car that came from Belgium not long ago looked absolutely stunning.
So, next stop for me is three days at Santa Pod and the 25th Anniversary MoparEuroNats, Friday 27 – Sunday 29 July. This is the biggest muscle car events in Europe, all american classics, trucks, modified and muscle cars plus american car clubs are welcome – see you there?!
Drop me a line if yo would like to get your cherished American car valued.
Keep drivin’ them old cars.
