    So good luck with getting BillyBob back on the road.

    Cheers, Paul.
    Thank you Paul.

    There has been a lot of **** going on in the background

    But life is good.

    Postbox surprise today from Disasterbus to add to my collection of quirky weird and wonderful knives.

    Loving it.

    Not as unrelated as it may seem.

    Remember the roll of vinyl Leatherette I bought last weekend?

    Unrolled it yesterday to see just how long it is.



    Well, more than twice what I thought, so at £7.00 for the roll, makes it cheap.

    This is double so x2



    And some more, you do the maths.......



    Adding it all up, comes to 38 foot by 4 foot or in modern measurement 11.6 meters long and 1.450 wide.

    Colour is a bit deceptive at this distance and angle.

    Beer cans for colour perspective.

    My friend Dennis has been hampered by the amount of rain in Missouri this year, but managed at last to cast the island for his Shell gas station yesterday, and again, it started to rain just as they finished the job.

    He also finished an English sign, which in the USA means Burnouts





    Almost done, final flatting was due.




    The Blazer was parked up outside, sideways on my drive yesterday just in case someone saw it and was interested.

    You never know.



    And finally, how the day ended here last night.




    Waiting for @Disasterbus to get here in half an hour.......

    Should be a good visit.

    Just adding these two random clips.

    Blazer still for sale, and more importantly, tyre kicking etc.

    One clip of wasting fuel on my drive.

    https://youtu.be/8E-Kz9IEays

    And this one made this morning when mate Kerry came to drop off some stuff for me.

    I had to force him to drive the Blazer (NOT)

    https://youtu.be/rGRgA7KsufU

    The guy is a gentle driver.

    A most generous comment on my Blazer For Sale ad.
    Maybe I was too critical.

    Happy with your staging lights??


    You see, only have to ask.



    Last night was Copperfields foe Americans and Hotrods.

    And dinner too.

    Starting up, and pulling the Blazer out front, and then Sally and I driving over toward Gravesend made me grin madly.

    Ready to Rock n Roll.




    On the Bypass I was motoring along at 70 and saw a guy in BMW M3 pull next to me, blow his horn and thought WTF [email protected], when the Thumbs Up came through his passenger side window.
    That made us chuckle, I think Sally is still getting surprised at the random attention it draws.

    Pulling in

    Ricky’s Lightening



    Richard and Sally’s Bruiser.



    Darren’s Ford Pop looking diminutive



    Full house.



    Loved this, in fact it created a bit of a storm.

    Ex USA Serviceman’s truck, no papers put it on a Q plate when he sold it.






    Loads of people came, but due to weather, most in their moderns, not getting shiny cars wet.

    As mentioned before, what a great group of car guys.
