Yes quite a few heads popped out of tents & campers including my mate who wondered what the hell was going on! lol!

We're also going to have another low rider in the club as well ... in the shape of my mates T25 on hydros. He's going to come along to the next meet down the Tropicana. Unfortunately he's not got a computer, but I'll stich up a few pics of his van when I get a chance.

Yes, it's my mate 'Red' who owns it now Smile
He's had it since last September, but i've not seen him in about 10 months till CTTP where I spotted him cruising up & down the beach lawns on his lowrider push bike.
He was gutted it was in the spray shop when CTTP was on Sad
He's not got a computer so knew nothing about the cruise or the club until the other Sunday .... Dan & Graham met him at Big Bang as he came up with me & Sharon.
He's really up for the club & coming to as many events as possible this season ... so expect to see him at the Tuesday meet this month!

Rick, last time I saw the van it needed tidying, I guess that's what he has had done.
I know it has been round for years. I really like that van.
Another new memory eh?? Bloody Hell!!

checked the engine over today and found out that as i thought the carb linkage isnt adjusted properly so only getting about half to 3 quarter throttle from the pedal No

but that made me well happy as that means the car can run times alot faster than the 18.5 second runs it did at big bang Very Happy afro Twisted Evil
