Head Turners

Last week we posted about the really nice ’66 Coupe that had a hit & run which came back to us for repairs. We have had a number of messages to say it was a terrible thing to have done, and it looks like it’s not that uncommon! We have to say what is happening to this world? Perhaps Covid has something to do with it affecting people’s brains.

Customer Cars

Eleanor! There you go, one word that says so much about a car. We have had our previous build back in with us to fettle it down now that it has been driven for a while. Why, Things settle down and bed in. Squeaks or rattles can develop on a new build so it’s not anything we haven’t seen before, and we sort of expect it and recommend bringing a new build back to us after a couple of thousand miles for once over.

We will put this lady up on the ramps and go over all the nuts and bolts to make sure everything is done up and where it should be.

Every time we have a movie car, Go on 60 seconds, the original Mach1, the 60s remake or John Wick we get lots of comments from visitors to the yard and the posts, mainly how much to build one?

As for costs? That depends on your budget of course, big block or small block, do you want the NOS tank, high torque auto, or manual, interior in leather etc. the list goes on.

A great car that will turn heads even 22 years later after the film came out!

John Wick

The engine has been bolted into the car now. The gearbox bolted straight onto it and now we will just fill the fluids, check the basic timings and fire her up.

In the back window of the John Wick car?

Our Cars

The Wolf

It’s been a while since we showed you what was going on with the wolf project. We are starting to put the hardware on the car, black chrome handles.

Scoops are now bolted into place. There are some great ideas we have for the scoops, we just need to design and get them made. We haven’t seen it done before but we like to push the bounderies.

We are putting the front valance on and of course will have our LED, white drive lights and the turn indicators in the same lens.

Under the hood we have our stainless steel hood springs. and some anodised bolts

Stock

Like buses our back order items are starting to arrive again. This time we have just a couple of pallets from the last order. While we were getting ready to put on the system, we asked Adam what was in there and where are we going to put it? His answer? ‘I can’t remember, but we will soon find out’. Are we running out of space?

The last lot of stock has been put away now for the more delicate items.

Got any carburettors? Just one or two.

Stay Safe & Take Care!

  1. There is a few quid sitting there in carbs alone! Opening unknown pallets must be like Christmas. 👍

  3. Just wondering about the efficacy of stainless steel hood springs. SS tends to work harden quite quickly in my experience. Perhaps you’ve specified a particular grade? They do look great though!

    • Thanks for the comment Nigel, we ordered these in as we don’t make them. The springs have been around for a fair while and we haven’t seen or heard of any problems with them to date. So we reckon as you say that they are a high spec specifically for springs. Since we posted that pic we have sold a few pairs, they do look awesome.
