Last weekend was the annual Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club reunion in northern England, so my dad and I went for a 800-mile roadtrip in his 1934 20/25 Rolls-Royce. Here’s how that five days adventure went!
The headlights were adjusted for the use on continental roads last Friday, yesterday I mounted them again. Looks way better now. Now I have to persuade the RWD (our DMV) to test it before the summer ends. The waitinglist is a month (!!!!) now? WHAT IS THIS?
Promise the welds look better in real life ;) went for the ‘make sure it’s stuck’ school of welding rather than ‘make it pretty’.
One of my readers stopped by the office for a visit and drove up in this. He’s been a regular visitor for the couple years I’ve worked here and I NEVER knew he had this car until today. Color me impressed/jealous. :)
Facelifted Mk1 (or Mk2 depending on how you name it) Fiesta.
This is great, the angle of the rear window is totally nuts, eighties space ship style.
In general drivers aren’t educated about the special circumstances around trucks, because it’s not required.
What I learn from stories like that is the trucking industry is heavily under regulated.
This made me laugh out loud....I remember the times of sr20 and mystical lotus, haha!
I’ve been on planes where I wished I was on something other than a plane. I’ve been on trains where I wished I was on something other than a train. I’ve been in cars where I wished I was in something other than a car. Walking and bicycles suck too.
rare here in Australia now.
Pleas import one! North America needs more awesome Euro rides...
I just got home from my cousin’s house for Easter and I photographed all my family’s vehicles in the driveway, and you know what? It’s a pretty good group!
I look forward to hearing about your adventure with the MR2. I’ve longed for the AW11s personally (because finding the SW20s is much more difficult, moreso unmodded and in manual tranny). Do tell me how it handles and such, I’m always keeping my eye out for AW11s on AutoTRADER.ca and Kijiji. ;)
This is awesome, I’d pay money to be you!
Don’t toy with me.
I have a set I’ll never use.
Omg, I can’t wait.
God, I need those wheels in a bad way...
Cool trip, you’ll have a blast in that little MR2! Looking forward to hearing about the Alfa and Citroen as well! :D
