Britain has just been basking in the hottest day of the year so far, and we can pretty much guarantee that the yard will get some soft top visitors, we were not disappointed. Friends of ours rocked at the open invite to the local cafe for an early breakfast, then a mini cruise back to the yard.
Lance in the ’70’s interpretation of the convertible, and Spence in the late ’60’s version of a convertible. With just a few years between each car, they both had a ride out in each others cars to compare. We managed to capture a little ‘Bromance’ going on and the pair of course played up for the camera. We understand from a reliable source that there is a rainbow coloured version of the photos out there on social media too.
Obviously discussions were had which was the best year for the convertible. All taken in the best of spirits, they never did get to the bottom of who’s car was best. Well, they did depending who you ask of course. As far as Mustang Maniac is concerned – both cars looked great. It was a dead heat for results in the heat of a glorious sunny day.
A little Charity:
Last Sunday a good friend of ours Gary W. sent us some pictures and some words to sum up what was going on for the day;
“It was the Little Waltham Open Garden and Classic Car Show in aid of Farleigh Hospice.
I went last year and it was a great show. I got an email a few weeks ago from the organiser who remembered my car and asked if I’d bring it along this year.
Part of her request was for me to drive ‘Elvis’ around the village so they could collect donations as we went along.
Clearly I agreed as I like using my old car to raise money for certain domestic based charities. I also let people sit in it and be photographed with ‘Elvis’ for a donation to the charity.
It was a great day and my car spent a lot of time on idle slowly chugging around the village – it performed faultlessly thanks to the great work and care provided by Mustang Maniac.
A great day was had by all.”
Not a pink ’55 Cadillac Fleetwood, but we think Elvis looked just great in a rare Mustang! Thanks to Gary for taking the time out to send us the Pics and words.
Yogi’s Engine Update:
Next Friday the 5th, is the Mustang Owners Club of Great Britain annual trip to the Santa Pod drag strip. Yogi’s engine has been built and is now in the process of being tuned on the dyno.
Yogi has the figures for how many hundreds of horse power he has at the mercy of his right foot. But he is keeping that a secret for now. The engine turned up at the yard this weekend and now Yogi will be getting his car ready for some drag action.
Take care in the sun, and have a beer for us!
