August 2005

Well, we are all back from the Mopar Euronationals at Santa Pod and guess what? your humble host won a trophy with the old Road Runner!

The trip up was entertaining with the heater matrix blowing up and filling the car with steam, the rear shock absorber dropping off (It think some dope didn't tighten up the top bolt...ahem!) and the gas tank started to leak, but otherwise the car went really well.

Me old mate Blue sorted the timing for me at Santa Pod and did his best with the vacuum gauge and the carb and there is no doubt now that the old Bird has plenty of Yee Haa!

The car still isn't finished, but its close, nevertheless, top snapper Dave McBride ( took this one at the top end of the strip at Santa Pod and I think a picture says says a thousand words, so I'll shut up!
