January muscle power

Standard

A warm welcome to 2019, I am sure it will be a fun packed year for all us muscle car gear heads – let’s hope so anyway!

I would like to start with some sour news regarding a couple incidents from both sides of the pond in December 2018. First up, a 1969 Road Runner became totally wiped out in Essex a few days before Christmas. It seems that a 74-year-old lady became pre-occupied whilst driving her Focus and hit the Beeper full-on. Both drivers were taken to hospital and later released with non-life-threatening injuries.

Drivin’ home for Christmas

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!

It’s July – see you at the Mopar Euronationals?

Hi folks,

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.
