A bit late with this, but a few weeks ago I took my VW down to Leeds for VW Festival. It was about a 120 mile round trip which had me a bit nervous as the engine had only been in 2 weeks. However it all worked out well, bar a little bit of oil out the breather lines. This turned into a good excuse to fit some stainless steel rocker covers with JIC fittings Smiley.

I came away with 2nd best Air-Cooled at VW Festival.

DDD in Bitburg for me too, around 500km one way trip. Weekend was a blast and the 3.88 R&P really makes a lot of fun at the autobahn. For next year on the to do list is a radio.
Good to read nicolas that you arrived safe at home, the engine sounded real awfull....

Harv hooked up the trailer and dragged the Ned bug to DDD for the weekend. Saturday had a foggy start which burnt off by 11 and Sunday soon dried out by 10am after some heavy overnight rain.

A great weekend with more than its share of laughter and great company. A special thanks to Mike and Fred and their club for putting on a great show and looking after us.

The track really suited Harvey and Ned with a string of passes on or around his pb followed by a new pb of 11.75 on some slicks that are now truly passed their sell by date.

See you all next year for sure.

i am pulling the engine today and tomorrow it will be on the stand. i was a bit heartbroken because i ran it quite a bit this summer and even MOT was without a problem, so when i first had to change the external cooler and then cope with the rattle i was pissed to say the least. i had all my racing gear with me… but i am glad i just went and was able to take my fastback to DDD, it has been years since i took it.

@felix thanks for your concern, car looked great as always!

@Richie, no pictures from my part, i was too busy holding my beer and burger.  Tongue

Couple of nice sleepers, Renault 5 van with upgraded 5GTturbo running gear and very subtle mk2 escort both appealed to me, the Go cart definitely wasn't subtle!!!

Still not been to the Retro Show allthough it surely looks good. My kind of cars there.
That coach is a Bedford OB I will tell you (and I would wouldn´t I :-)  )
It was for sale for ages, something like 120k.
But has a very posh interior. Did you look inside?
Nice Hillman Avenger and Datsun Wagon.
