I took my car to the London museum of steam and water to the steam and gasoline show. Itís a small show put on by Neil Melliard of Pro Sign and Neil Brown. Plenty of cool cars and you can also have a look at the museum.  Not a vw I know, but it is aircooled and more cal look than a trike

After demolishing the current garage (asbestos sheet/wood frame) at the Crofts house last weekend I needed a new temporary storage solution for the 63.
Harvey (Nedbug) has kindly offered a bit of storage so made the 40 mile trip today. Great fun

It drives nice, canít really tell the difference as I never had a problem with swing axle.  Iím driving it longer distances and fixing the problems so I can try and make it a 10 second street car. No A frames or trailers needed  Grin

A trip home with the AA is more than likely on the cards though considering my luck

I finally did the return trip from what I posted above. My new garage was ready to accept the 63 back. Did the 40 mile trip home and enjoyed every second. Had a bit of fun with a Fiesta ST on the way too.
