After the success of our (Stanford hall alternate) BBQ, we thought we could have another get together after an awesome show season. And of course before all you buffers put your cars into hibernation 😉
Dan du Cros will be on the BBQ cooking up his Family Butcher supplied meats! And we will have some tea and coffee.
Last time we had a peoples choice award and a slamwerks choice award also.
Fingers crossed we get good weather and if not we have a huge area indoors we can use also.
We all just got back from what we categorically agreed was the best show we have ever visited.
1000 miles, 6 aircooled cars and a bunch of mates.
– Not one breakdown (just some repairs at spa)
– 4 tanks of fuel each (9 for stef)
– 3 pairs of tyres
– 1 clutch fork
– 1 hub seal
– a couple of litres of oil….
– 1 inflatable doll
More pictures and a small write up will follow, for now its back to work.
Although most of our cars are og paint and slammed we do have a few members with beautifully restored cars. One such car belongs to DTA member Stefan Rossi.
His 67 Sav beige uk rhd bug sports a 2276cc motor, 48 weber IDA’s, FK89 camshaft, CB 044 super magnum heads, MSD ignition with 6AL box, full autometer pro lite gauges, Simpson harnesses, 6 point roll cage with harness bar, disc brakes all around, rancho pro street transmission, Porsche pattern ercos up front and wide 5 pattern… you get the picture!
The car was fully restored around 2 years ago and has since done around 4000 miles. Chassis is detailed and all nuts and bolts zinc plated gold, nice!
A strip car you may think… you would however be wrong. Stefan drives this car on the road quite regularly including a 2000 mile road trip around europe (you don’t want to know the fuel bill!)
This car is fun! – apart from when you snap another axle ay stef 😉
Make sure you check out Automotive photographer Dan du Cros. A leading car photographer in the uk…
He is also a DTA member with an awesome bay window!
Along with multiple Volksworld cover cars, he also recently shot Si Medlicott’s oval for Hayburner.
Keep an eye out for more photographs featured in major vw magazines shortly…. 😉
