A New Helper

A slightly sad week to see the Highland Green ’67 fastback go back to the owner after we have got the car to a rolling a shell. The owner wants to complete the restoration themselves, which we can of course understand. Tuesday we loaded her up and shipped her off. Yogi’s hard work is surely to be appreciated when she is unloaded at the other end. higjhland67-57

We often have visitors to the yard, this weekend was no exception. Adam’s Grandson Jack, (Yes – Adam is a Grandad) came to help us out in the yard. We had some work to do on an LAR lorry where he was helping out in the cab pressing pedals when asked, the extra pair of hands or feet can really come in handy. Jack was also given the important tasks of putting the new stock arrivals away in their correct places in the store rooms. Adam says that he has been a “great help this weekend”. Jack seen here sporting the Mustang Maniac work clothing. jack2 It will only be 6 long years before Jack can learn to drive, but he has already singled out a car that he wants: the Shelby KR no less! We can’t say we blame him with his impeccable taste, but there is a small problem – it’s Adam’s!

Keep dreaming Jack there is a queue for that car or you can just start saving up for your own one 🙂

Thanks for your help this weekend Jack.

Throughout the year there are many car shows sadly we can’t get to them all, but we try to be there in spirit at least. A couple of Weeks ago at Brands Hatch racing circuit there was American Speedfest 3. We had Yogi representing MM there and the other half of the Bully Brothers Spence took his too. There was lots of photo’s being taken but we have picked the more unusual ones rather than just sitting in a field. Brands11

Of course we have to have the standard lined up in field shot, there was some promotional girls welcoming the visitors to the circuit.

Special thanks to Chris and Paul “Lob Monster” for letting us use your pics.

Customers Cars:

The Highland Green ’67 car has been featured over the last couple of weeks in order to get her back as promised. But we haven’t forgotten the Acapulco coupe. Glass has started to go in and now looks a little more like a finishing project, hopefully the rear glass will be going in this week too. Jack even got in on the act to help Mart fit the rear quarter windows! Not sure what is next on this little lady but it could be more glass or the interior if it’s back from the trimmers. Glass-11

  1. I loved the combo of black/white and color pictures featured. Hooray for Jack and following in great footsteps. Please tell him that a favorite phrase for me is “Mustangs Rule”. Perhaps he should have his own WordPress Page to log the experiences of a hot rod youngster. Finally, thanks for checking out my Manns Restoration post. I linked Mustang Maniac to it, as I felt that business is the closest I’ve come to you guys over here.

    • Hi Debbie,
      I saw the link to us thank you and I have not forgotten to return and answer your question. Soon as I have a little time I will be back. You beat us to it as we were thinking of doing an interview or two here. Great minds and all that. 🙂
      As for the photos the guys had a good time, especially when they had a convoy going on over the bridge taking pics of each other. Some of the pics ended up on our Facebook previously but we collated them and put them out again.
