Morning all, I thought I would introduce you to my other passion, as you may of read in my last post, I’m a bit of a petrol head, or maybe I should say a bit of a frustrated petrol head, see I love cars, love working on them, would love to restore one, love everything about them, the trouble is I don’t have a garage, well not one big enough to hold a car, so it makes it very difficult to work on it, I have however spent the weekend turning my small garage into a workshop, and i’m really pleased with the result. So now when the weather is warmer and it stops raining I can drive the car up to the workshop and work on it, albeit still outside but better than not being able to work on it at all.

Now I suppose you would like to see my pride and joy.

It’s a 1969 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia, imported from sunny California, this is it as I purchased it just over a month ago.

As I work on “Hank”(thanks to my wife) I’ll post more shots, I will be showing Hank at Carfest in August this year.

Beautiful Scotland   30 comments

On my recent visit to Scotland I spent a bit of time with my Nephews, over a few cold beers we talked about the beauty of Scotland, the flora and fauna, like the salmon making it’s way up stream to lay her eggs, red squirrels collecting nuts for the cold winter ahead and young deer scratching at the snow for some winter grass to eat.

This got me thinking and we made a decision to venture out the following day and check out some of Scotland’s wildlife.

Now you may be thinking how I don my thermals and waterproofs, fill a backpack with essentials like spare water, barley sugar sweets, one of those foil sheets, a GPS, shave off my moustache but keep my beard, grab my hiking pole and head off, after of course informing family and friends of where we are going and when we will be back.

Thats what a sensible person would do, but i’m an offshore worker and a petrol head so we took this.

A V8.

Found a bit of snow on the top of the mountain.

We aren’t stuck here, just changing drivers.

You don’t need to follow a track in this beast, as long as the trees have been cut down.

I don’t know what all the fuss is about now, we didn’t see any wildlife.

No tree or any wildlife was hurt in the making of this post. Have a great weekend.
