Drivin’ home for Christmas

Standard

Hi folks and a Merry Christmas to you all.

I missed the NEC Classic show at Birmingham in November despite having three requests to attend from various folk. Good to hear a mopar win the Classic American car of the year, a fab 1957 Dodge Custom Royal rag top. Well done Gary Sanders.

Barn finds still turn up in the States; last month a 1970 440 6 pack V code Charger came out of enforced hibernation, finished in Go-Mango orange, excellent!

This month I have had the pleasure of valuing a 1972 Chrysler Charger 770 in Scotland. These RHD Australian cars are in high demand and really good examples are increasingly difficult to uncover.

It may seem a long way to August 2019 but please note that the NEW date for the MoparEuroNats Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th AUGUST – put it in the Filofax now!

A quick plug for the show now…

We would like eight entrants for this year’s Incredible Burn Out Contest.

The first six who sign-up, and commit to the contest including participating, will have one weekend pass refunded to them by Santa Pod.

The winner will receive two tyres of these sizes available 275 x 60 x 15 or 255 x 60 x 15 inches and a trophy. Winner takes all and is crowned Burn Out King 2019.

Tyres to be handled and distributed by Santa Pod.

Rules are: – any rear-wheel drive American car, truck or Hot Rod can take part, duration is a timed 30 seconds and the winner is determined by a panel of judges and crowd reaction.

The reigning champ Andy Bozwell in his 1966 Nostalgia Dodge Coronet holds the crown with a mega impressive controlled Burn Out that we have ever seen at the EuroNats – time for a new King?

So why not sign up to this fantastic experience and take part in a stand out section of the 26th Anniversary MoparEuroNats? Give Rich Berry a call on O7759 498651 to register your interest.

Lastly, very sad news to hear the passing of Nascar Legend David Pearson who died aged 83 in November. And closer to home, North London Mopar man Gerry Lancaster, famous for his mega rapid 1968 Dodge Dart who died at only 61 – RIP.

See you all in 2019.

Keep drivin’ them old cars!

Merry Christmas.
