That last pic is a classic cruzin' shot!

Brilliant pics Ken, I can't even begin to imagine why any real car freaks wouldn't want to see them!

It's funny but those Rods don't really look dated - I guess they look nostalgic though! :)

More please...

I've also PM'd you re: possible date for the movie show!

Hello Nick. WOW. 100 hours of dvd's. Judgeing bt the other posts. There is a lot more stuff around with what Alex and Milton have. And I'm sure there is more. You've got yourself a full time job. What a great job though.

Hello Stew. Yeah. That last picture is a classic crusin shot. And it wasn't set up. That is just the way it happened. Oh. happy days.

The pics of rods I have put on here are as you say nostalgic. And they are certainly in a different class to the rods that are doing the shows now. But a 32 or a model A will always be the shape they were built. So they are timeless. Did that make sense?

Ken.

Mikeyboy coming home.

Hello Mike. I hear you will be at the movie premiere. It will be good to see you again. Will there be a red carpet and stuff like that?

My VW (Betsy).

Hello.

Pic 1, 1971. Grey primer and American lights.
Pic 2, 1972. Now white. But I had plans. And me with hair.
Pic 3, 1972. This was the plan. Paint design copied from US drag car "Inch Pincher"
Pic 4, 1999. Yeah. I took VW to California. OK. The one near Graet Yarmouth.
Pic 5, 2006. At home. SOTF banner on wall. Bonnet with Porsche logo was used on the car in 1970.

The First Picture Show...

Guys,

If everyone is cool with 20th June from around 7 ish onwards, I'll draft something up and get Si to post it as a sticky so we can get a Roll Call going on to get an idea of numbers!

Ken S - I think we all deserve a red carpet so if thats what you want...

Really looking forwards to it!

I'll put it in the blurb but any ideas/thoughts let me know and also for those travelling from afar, I'll get details of local hostels etc so we can all enjoy a drink!

Rog - will you be home for it?

Stew & Milt

I'd expect nothing less than a red carpet Ken,and plenty of cakes and donuts and tea.I know Milt and Stew make the best tea 'cause they inherited that from their lovely mum,and I havent had a decent cup for a LONG time!
