Barn find

I am in France for the week and look what I have find. Lot's of goodies in a barn. I am not telling you where it is. Ah and there are lots more.

old rusty beetle

in the bush...

Some factory safari

I could only see 3 :-( but hey they are safari ;-)

ready to go engine. I wish!!!

Oh a 4 in 1 exhaust.
heads, pistons, dynamo, drums....
A puma adjustable front beam.


nice 1961 splitty

and some more bits

oh an alternator.
and more bits

oh interesting, I can smell a flat 4.

oh I think I have found a 1600cc case

oops, wazat !!!
I knew I could smell an engine, 1835cc twin weber and street eliminator heads. :-) I should nick it to put in my bus back in uk. It will have a serious attitude with that at the back !!!

Oh another splitty.

Hey, I forgot to say that the barn is my dad's and these are some of the bits I have collected when I was there 15 years ago. The beetle is waiting for me and I should really nick the engine to put in my bus. The one above is a 59 and it's now in Wales. Darren came to pick it up last year. It should be back on the road soon...

Volksworld Stonor Park

This month in the September issue of Volksword there is an article about the Stonor show. Here is a picture of my bus. That's cool. It's the 4th time this year, and the picture is the biggest so far. It's also an hat trick because it's the 3rd time in 3 issues July, August and September...
September issue

Autometer shift light

I was a bit bored this weekend so I decided to connect my freshly bought Autometer Shift Light.

I first connected a wire to the "-" of the coil and also connected 1 wire to the after contact. I only have the test pill, which turn on the light @3000 RPM but I will get some new ones with the tachometer I have ordered.
