Old farts Garage opening – Wrap

Thanks to Sean’s invite to the sprite club members, we had about a dozen enthusiastic shed devotees attend the event.  Great to see a range of cars in various states of completion, including replica GT40 and Cobra.  Also a very nice Aston Martin DB2.  Thanks to the sponsors Minnow creek wines and Regency TAFE.  Look out for another event of this type soon!

2015-03-20 20.22.27 2015-03-20 19.28.46 2015-03-20 19.28.15Miles also scored poll position!

 

Yum Cha – wrap

A great morning out for those who attended.  Four brave souls diced with trains, bike racing events, bushfire damage and the general foibles of driving old cars in a loop though the Adelaide hills eventually arriving at Citi-Zen Chinese restaurant.  Too meet the rest of the crew who joined us for some fantastic Chinese fare!

As you can see by the picture we kept it fairly holy for a Sunday morning :-)

Time:           7 for 7.30pm

Location:     SIMAX Engineering, 49 George Street, Parkside

Audience:    ClubbiesSA members & friends, Sprite Club members

Come and help us celebrate the opening of the Old Farts Garage. This is the enterprise set up by Simon Taylor and Alan Austin based at Simax Engineering, to deliver bespoke engineering solutions for classic and race cars. Bits and pieces from a Bugatti to a Sprite, a Jaguar, a clubbie or an RCR can be repaired or re-made. Come and see what they can offer you.

On the night, we will revisit the development of the twin cam heads for the Model T, plus Simon’s latest acquisition, the RCR. Alan will talk about living with a Riley & other English machines. Together they will recount their work on Escorts & the BDA & BDG engines. There will be a range of great cars on display.

To help the night go well (thanks to Paul Doube & Gordon Boyce), I have arranged Tony Walker, the winemaker from Minnow Creek to be there for a wine tasting of his latest products, plus have bottles available for sale. This will be supported by products from the Cheese and Bread section of Regency Campus. Tea & coffee available on night. Bring your Clubbie or Sprite. Limited parking next door, on footpath & on road.

Don’t miss this night. It will be fascinating. I need to know numbers so email me if you can come.
