Bet the Ace must have been fun tonight - not. No Fords allowed in the car park and Police doing spot checks on anything with a Blue Oval apparantly.
Thanks a f#cking bunch, chavs... Image

I have a feeling the retro track-day event at Brands next month includes retro Ford. Despite the owners it'll be interesting to see how e21's perform compared to MK2 Escorts?

Dave @ E21-revival is taking his too. Should be good.

Was pretty good, a nice mix of interesting stuff and no idiots performing donuts. Only 1 other e21 there, owned by a guy called Ashley who runs a car-sourcing company, it's his customer courtesy car! A few pics here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Slick-Att ... 1648625931

Got a chance to pop into October's German Car Night at the Ace Cafe in London; probably the last good turnout before the weather changes.

Image
Image

Interesting story behind this E30; it's a 3-owner, late '83 323i (with the E21 M20B23 engine, but on L-Jet); the first two owners were caring old souls that spent a ton of money onmaintenance. The second owner put the car into the local BMW specialist for an autobox rebuild, but then sadly passed away days later. The widow wanted nothing to do with the car, so it spent NINE years under a tree in the garage's backyard, gearbox-less and forlorn, until they sold it to an enthusiast who recomissioned it and put a manual 'box in. It's only done 70K miles and has plenty of life in it, judging by the rolling burnout he did on leaving... :launch

Image

The three ages of E30:

Image

Super sano 325i. It was a day for E30s.

Image
Image

It gets dark real quick at Ace Corner...

Image

...told you. :wink:

Image

Only the two E21s this month, both were great but this was my favourite of the two:

Image
Image

Lurrrve the wheels on this E28 M535i:

Image
Image

One of the critiscms I have of 'German' Car Night is not enough Mercs. These two R126 Sl's gamely kept up the M-B side of the divide:

Image
Image

VAG cars have their own night, which meant this bike carb equipped Audi 50 (a model that was introduced before it's MKI VW Polo doppelganger) was left on the pavement like a pork chop outside a Jewish butchers.
Will look good when it's finished.

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Monday Night's all right for crusin'...

Image

I know this Alpina B6 3.5 of old; familiarity doesn't diminish it's aura:

Image

And still the E30s came:

Image

Another regular: an E46 M3 CSL. Yum.

Image

E38 7er looked the tits in satin black and US-spec bootlid; was for sale at £4K:

Image

The E21/E30 divide...

Image

And lastly: the owner of this E88 1er paid top dollar for this car.
He won it in a raffle - and paid just £1 for the ticket...

Yes its Tommi's Polo trying to be an Audi :read

He seems to be spending far to much time on this rather than sorting out his E21. :hammer
