Drive Classics Club

If you’re a regular visitor here you would have no doubt seen my previous post about the Drive Classics meet last year held at the glorious St Michaels Manor Hotel. Well Sunday was the second event and it just gets better. Despite having a quick visit planned we stayed for a couple of hours and […]

Swapmeet

Happy New Ye…. oh wait. Its March already. But yes the first event for us as such, today, was the brilliant open day at Greatworth Classics combining with the first of many (we hope) DDK Swapmeets. Life before eBay was very different. If you wanted to buy used car parts you’d have to actually buy […]

Drive Classics Club

Tom Horna of Autohouse London and now Drive Classics embraced the social aspect of social media above and beyond what it usually stands for and arranged a meeting face to face, yes, actually in real life. He organised the first Drive Classics Club ‘Classics at The Manor’ event and invited us to partake, along with other […]

Luft GB

Luftgekühlt has become more than just a word over the last 5 years or so. Translated from the German as ‘air-cooled’ the trademark is now, in the right circles, as synonymous with air-cooled Porsches as the name Porsche itself. The classic car ‘scene’ (I hate that word but stick with me) can be a stuffy […]

Silverstone Classic 2018

I tend to start most posts with a nod to the weather, usually poor, that I encounter on my jaunts to different motoring events. The idea that as a nation we’re obsessed with the weather may have some truth but with such unpredictability you can excuse us for being bemused when the weather fails to […]

Sports Car Together Day

In honour of the 70th anniversary of the very first Porsche car sold, dealerships across the world celebrated ‘Sports Car Together Day’. A celebration of the Porsche car and brand but welcoming owners of all marques of Sports Cars together to join the celebrations. We chose to go to the Porsche Centre Colchester, well renowned […]

Doorslammers at Santa Pod Raceway

Santa Pod, it’s been a while but even after all these years you still deliver the goods. Around five or six years I think since I last graced the hallowed ground with my presence. A place which has had a profound effect on my existence with regular visits through my teens up to my late […]

Type 2 Detectives Coffee, Bacon Rolls and Cars

Yes, coffee, bacon rolls and cars. Pretty much everything that can entice me to make a trip out. Not very far for this one either, to the magnificent village of Burwell, home of the Type 2 Detective’s flourishing headquarters. Having started life in Burwell many moons ago as Type 3 Detectives specialising in Volkswagen Type […]

356 International

The single most important Porsche 356 event of the year, organised by Porsche Club GB and I went! Well….. sort of. I would have loved to have gone for the whole event but due to varying factors I wasn’t able to get it booked. The whole event comprises of a few days of workshop tours, […]

NSRA Supernationals

The National Street Rod Association (NSRA) Supernationals is the place to be if you’re into Street Rods, Customs, Hot Rods and the culture that envelops them. The venue at Old Warden is the perfect setting for this weekend event and possibly Europe’s biggest gathering of its type. The quality of cars is exceptional whether you’re […]
