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 […]

Meanwhile at Pie

Spring is here, almost, and the season of cars and coffee meets has kicked off. I feel a strong sense of hibernation through the winter. Sometimes I think if I got given a massive cardboard box with some holes in it I’d quite happily snuggle down inside the safe confines of a cosy airing cupboard […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

912 Road Trip

I’ve not posted a film for a while. I jumped in with Mark Morgan of Triplesspresso in his 912 Porsche for a bit of a road trip. We took the car up to Ian at Wolfsburg Performance Services for a bit of a freshen up before Mark’s trip out to Classic Le Mans. 2hrs each way […]

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, […]

Classic Sports Car Club

This weekends sees another round of the Classic Sports Car Club (CSCC) so it’s about time I uploaded the best shots from the round at Snetterton a few weeks ago. I say a few but it was only a month ago at the beginning of April. Although you wouldn’t think it looking at the photos, […]
