…since we last made a blog post. Also it was a fair old time when Ron’s emkaytwo was off the road after it spat it’s guts all over the motorway.
So we thought it would make for a nice comeback post with picture’s of Ron’s re-worked motor, and car to boot. All good things come to those who wait right?
The first change that you’ll notice as you walk up to the car are the lovely new red shoe’s it’s wearing. Which are a fairly uncommon (Fitment and width etc) set of comp’s which used to sit under the arches of Pea’s mk3 cab.
Yeh it’s static too. There’s been a hell of a lot of work put into this car to get it sitting like this and to be drivable too.
The man himself paying his biggest challenge some attention.
Which is what we show you now. While the engine was out getting re-built Ron thought he may aswell pay the engine bay some love, which added to the lengthy build. But we think the end product was well worth waiting for, all though he’s not quite happy with it and still has some tricks up his sleeve to make this complete.
So the emkaytwo returns to RollHard and we’re bloody happy about that. Well done Ron.
I (Tony) went to the VW festival at Harewood house in Leeds yesterday for my first time. We set of quite late, and it started to rain, so it looked like we were set for a nice normal northern day out. But luckily for us it passed pretty quick, and when we arrived at the show it was nice and sunny.
We arrived at about 3pm and thought it would of quietened down, but the show was still really busy and showed no signs of getting quiet any time soon.
As we were walking through the carpark the amount of high quality car’s was crazy already, like this amazing Mk5 sat in the weeds.
Then we got into the show and their was more mk5 goodness (Got a thing for Mk5′s at the mo) to be enjoyed.
Then I stumbled across the best kid’s toy ever. Wish when i was a wee wipper snapper that my dad made/bought me one of these. Pure awesome.
Then you had all the usual motor’s you’d expect to see at a VW show, like these super clean Mk1′s.
Jimmy’s family wagon Mk3 looking spot on with the TT comps.
Subtle Mk4 sat on Breyton’s.
And there was a nice selection of older VeeDub’s too. Like this spotless Beetle.
Then we had some ratted bus’ which looked the nuts.
There’s some more pictures up on my Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/42503655@N05/sets/72157627313762215/
A few of us made the trip down (and up) to this years DC11 show held at Turweston Aerodrome. After setting off early sunday morning in the rain, i wasn’t expecting to have the best day. (Also had to replace a coilpack on saturday afternoon. Managed to get a new one just before the shop closed ) Anyway, the further south we went the weather started to pick up (SHOCK!) slightly. Although it wasn’t much, as it was pretty cloudy all day long. But dry! Right less of my ramblings and onto the show.
It was my 1st time at a DC show this year, and 1st impressions were good. I liked the location of the show with planes dotted about on site, then there was a large pond in the middle too. Made for nice backdrop, which i didn’t really capitalise on at all with the photo’s. Ooops.
I didn’t really take that many photo’s either, so here’s the best of what i did. Enjoy.
The Team JapSpeed Subaru drift car has been STOLEN. This happened earlier tonight. It was taken from the Maxxis Tyres (UK) Stand at the Performance Vauxhall show at Santa Pod.
If you have any information or saw ANYTHING please get in touch with the guys at Japspeed … Or at the very least copy this onto your facebook wall, twitter or anywhere else that you feel fit.
Lets try and get these tw@ts caught who did this.
Now share, share, share.
Here’s a teaser pic from Si Gray who took a few shot’s for us yesterday evening/night.
Here’s a few of my pics from last weekends Mod Nats show.
Buzzer’s awesome Civic.
Dales award winning Saxo
Maitlands Mk4 with it’s peachy backside.
Jamies Mk3 YOB
Which is now for sale if anyone interested…
And finally for now this cool S.W.A.T van from Rayvern Hydraulics.
Still got loads of pics to sort through, and seemingly no time to do it! But here’s a pic of a car that caught my eye at the show.
Some of you may of already seen this on our facebook page, but if you haven’t seen it then we now seem to have some boyband types amongst us.
We should also have a load of pics up later on of the whole trip to Belgium and the show itself.
