For over 3 decades there has been a massive American car and Rod scene in South London.

Even to this day the streets often full of American cars, Rods and Kustoms all cruisin in convoy

Who or what do you remember and why....?

Johns place was right across the green from where that picture was taken, in the Kings road. His jean shop was in Reigate.

Matt signed on over the other side a few weeks back so hopefully he'll get word and come over here for a chinwag!

It wasn't Matt, it was his son Mathew. That's how I managed to get back in touch with Matt.
