Hi everyone, just found your forum so thought I'd sign up and see what's happening. I built a nice T-Bucket which was on the front cover of Custom Car magazine in the April 1990 issue (for those of you with a library of back issues). I currently don't have a Hot-Rod or a Yank but I'd love to know if my hot rod is still out there anywhere?

It was Ed Wimble-based with a Rover 3.5, Jag rear, 8 straight pipes etc.

I also have a whole wealth of Street Machine and Custom Car magazines I want to get rid of - I have the first few years of Street Machine magazines in the official binders, I even still have the free sticker in Issue 1 of Street Machine magazine.

I also collect the die-cast and plastic hot rod kits from America - I have rather a lot of that stuff but I'm not selling it! Any fellow collectors out there?

Thanks for now,

Dave

That's the one! And yes, that's me....
Welcome to the site by the way.

I remember seeing you driving the T round that shopping area car park by the A127 Basildon sometime in the 90s-they tryed to start a weekly car meet there.Ken Robbins red Nomad was there and Wilf Stacey in his orenge Mk2 Zephur.

I collect models by the way-got a few:shake:

Have you looked on the Southend thread in history? (thats where i posted the newspaper cutting)

Thanks for the pointers - I have looked through the Southend history thread and will try to post some of my old photos when I get the chance.

Regards, Dave

Hey Dave, didn't you used to have a mustang and play in a band at "The Bull" in Basildon also?

Dear Col,

Yep, sure did, still play in a band too and have just released my 5th album with my current band. Were you in a band yourself (I vaguely remember a guitarist called Colin in a band called 'New Shoes')?

Not in a band but a permanent fixture at the bar of the Bull! :drunk:

I remember chatting to you about cars one night when you had your mustang there.
