Dragging the Dolomite into the 21st century

Just installed a couple of Christmas presents into the Dolomite this afternoon. Some good old fashioned pod speakers in the corners of the front parcel shelf to compliment the rear pods I fitted a few weeks ago, which suit the cars age. 

However the other accessory is a bit more this century, a Pioneer Radio/ media player. Allows me to plug in and play tunes from my iPhone and iPod controlling them from the head unit or even plug in a USB stick. Definitely not very 70s but at least my iPhone and iPod have some good old 70s tunes in thier library!

White Lion Breakfast Meet

Went along to the White Lion Breakfast Classic Car Meet today in the GT6. Always a nice varied selection of Classics everything from Jags, to MGs, To Replica Bugattis to a Deloreon. I recognised a White Dolly 1500 that parked next to my GT6 as a car that had parked next to me outside the Auto Factors in Camberley a couple of months back. Turns out that the owner David only lives about 1/2 mile away from me and he recognised my GT6 and knew I also had a 1500 Dolly as he'd seen it parked on my driveway.... He's owned the car since the 80s and it looks pretty tidy, it's up fro sale at the moment if anyone is looking for a Dolomite give me a shout and I'll put you in touch.

Back to the Future?

Saw this Rusty MG Driving through the town yesterday with the Kids, looks rough but sounds sweet and it's got a bit of rally motorsport in it's history.

Saw these Bugatti replicas a couple of years back when they dropped into the Club Triumph National day at Hollycombe steam museum.

OK Not a classic Car I know but it's certainly a classic bike, chopped Matchless Twin, very 70s...

This Anglia was very tasty, it's got a Lotus Twin Cam Engine
