We recently had a recent delivery of some wonderful wheels from Scott Drake which are the Classic Style rims, but made in alloy. We have had lots of enquiries with emails asking for pictures of them on a car. As ever we are happy to oblige the requests, one of the cars we fitted the new wheels on we still have in the yard. We must say they look even better on a car, a very clean look update to a much-loved wheel.
Rumour has it the Yogi has sensed the summer is over and getting ready to hibernate we expect, although we had a very nice hot day on Saturday. He has been moving his cave, sorry, workshop around and putting his toolbox’s in the larger workshop. A rare photo here of our smaller workshop with no cars in it. Yogi is in there somewhere!
His newly arranged work shop also has something lurking under cover!
Original Mustang radios are around and can be quite pricy, how long they last for is a little bit of a lottery as they could be getting a bit fragile now. We have had a radio purchased as working from the States, but when tested it was dead. An upgrade was fitted into something that now is. The AM band section of the electrics we beyond repair unfortunately, but what has happened now is that a 3.5mm jack plug has been fitted inside the case and plugs directly into an MP3 player. This will give the sounds you want from a classic looking radio. This particular radio was an after market replacement to the Autolite ford units. MP3, podcasts, audio books or radio via your phone all at your disposal now. The cost to upgrade is very reasonable indeed, for an additional functionality of a working radio or upgrade a no functioning radio. Providing that it can be repaired of course. We’ve had our first test unit back and it works a real treat. Here the radio being looked at to work out the fault then add the updates to unit. There are no case modifications give the game away, just an extra wire that can be hidden where ever you like, even in the glove box if you want. You can have that fantastic glow of old school radio with a hidden modern twist. The cable supplied was a very generous two meters or more. Call or email us for more information. Modern equivalents just don’t quite have the soul or looks as the old school radios.
We have a snap shot of a man dedicated to sorting his car out. Chris was in the hot sun, with a heat gun! Not the best place to be but he has made some progress. We have moved his gearbox nearer to his car which will stored properly soon next to it.
Modern day now, we have been sent a link from our good friend Gary where at.Ford.com have released some pictures of the new GT350R rolling of the production line.
