USC 2013 at Santa Pod Raceway
This year's Ultimate Street Car was set to be a scorcher and it didn't
disappoint with three days full to the brim with cars, live music, insane
stunts and madness. Whether you were a Santa Pod regular or losing your
"Pod V Plates" you were bound to be entertained from morning til night and
for some through until morning again!
Off to a new home!
Finally after moving house I have space in the garage at home to move Lucie
(A 1961 Reliant Regal Mk VI) into and hand back the keys to the council for
the garage. I shall now be able to take her for a spin without wondering if
someone has parked infront of the garage when I get there and end up
knocking on dorrs to see who it is. As she was cold the choke was out hence
the fast tick over and the back is still full of gardening tools rolling
around which are the thuds and clatters you hear.
3.5 litre V8 Reliant Robin.
1976 Reliant Robin with a 3.5 litre V8 Rover engine driving off its trailer
for a display in Tamworth. It's a Reliant that boy racers wish they hadn't
tried to race as they trail behind sucking in the Exhaust fumes. :o) (
