I was just able to visit the Lounge after our return home from the EBI and was thrilled to see all the kind comments and photos of the White Car. A special thanks to Russell, Mike Walraven along with everyone else involved with the putting on the special even (EBI). It was so much fun for me to revisit 44 years of the past. To sit & drive the car with my wife brought back so many fun memories. And to all of you that joined me in the fun and those who couldn't be there but are sharing your interest.....A BIG THANK YOU!!!

Russell...you made it happen..."We All Saw The One" thanks to you.

Ditto on the fun had by all. As a joining member, I saw the joy in not only Jim and Diane Holmes, but the hundreds of fans of the Car, as they set their eyes on the mythical “ white car!” Having the experience of attending my first EBI, I picked the right year to attend to be part of the debut and to be there with fellow DKP members as we all shared in the joy at hand, bravo to all that made this happen!

Great to read the feature in the Feb 21 VolksWorld issue, and nice to see VolksWorld getting back on track.
In the feature it rolls Flat 4 BRMs. Is it wearing original BRMs yet?

In the feature (that I haven't seen yet) it is wearing Original BRMS and was wearing Original BRMS at EBI in 2019, why do you think this car would have replicas on it and why do you think they are not original Huh

Hi Russell,

The Volksworld feature does state the car wears Flat 4 replicas in the pictures

Eh...............

How the fuck did they work that out, the wheels were repolished by Richie King at KK for the feature...

I've also heard that I'm from Edinburgh which is also untrue.... Aberdeen Born and Bred.

Oh, that’s a very big ball dropped by VolksWorld!
It raised an eyebrow when I read it...

I did think you may just have enough originals to find a spare set to go on the car!







Mind you, even more embarrassing to be called an Edinburgher?

And before anyone says/thinks...although I wrote the feature, I didn't write the captions to the photos. If I had, I'd not have swapped Mark Thurber and Greg 'Youngie' Aronson.  Grin

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Russell and VolksWorld for revisiting the fun times of the past for myself and I'm sure Greg Aronson. It was so kind of Russell to send a couple of the Magazines over the pond for us so we could enjoy going back in time. I say "we" because because Russell sent me two copies so I was able to share one with Greg.  All in all, I'm sure Greg would agree, it's amazing and fun to see that the Cal-Look is still out there and still carries a bit of popularity.

I must say it was the time of my life to enjoy driving the car again with my wife at my side (whom I owned the car while dating) at the EBI!!!!

Thanks to all of you that continue the interest and to Russell for bringing the White Car back for all to enjoy!
