We recently bought this Suzuki Jeep from Josh, who's been up the barn this week getting it fixed up and ready for a session down Bures Pits (so far hes been removing engines & changing clutches, and the plan is for a further lift, relocating the Fuel Tank a full external roll cage & a snorkel! All in all That's Pretty impressive work for a 15 year old!! ) 

We were so impressed with his mechanical skills he's now joining the team for a bit of weekend work!

Stuart who own's the '55 Panel was off to a Scooter Run-Out today so we decided to tag along in the bus.

We followed the run from Tollgate at Colchester over to Clacton, but there were plenty of Scooters from much further afield.

At Colchester..

James came to pick up the '65 today...

Looking very pleased with his new toy!

 

And Tom dropped off his bus to have its steering box raised..pretty unusual faded paint on this one!

Apparently the first owner bought it in Dove blue then decided he didnt like it and had it redone in mango green! Looks pretty cool now its had a good few decades of bleaching to it!! Love the hillbilly window stickers too!!

Hans Footz has been incredibly idle over the last month, so he got a big kick up the arse and helped Dan give the 65's engine a once over

Once he got going there was no stopping him, next he was off to assist with some bodywork on Lees Cargo Doors..

And Finally...

So we all had a wicked time at Volksworld show, saw some great cars, caught up with loads of people and then to top it off Tinoc won Best Rat award which was totally unexpected  

 

I refused to go up, so Paul did the posing and trophy collecting on his own ...
