Great speaking with you as well John.



Got some pics from Dennis over the weekend.

Remember the tree pile from cutting back the brush and trees at his place??

Well, it's all gone, burned away.

He also sent me a pic of a future addition to my collection.

I love it, different and never had one like it.



Got home from work tonight.....

Envelope in the post

Opened it.

Minnesota plates and some stickers, plus a description where the plates came from.

Thanks Jeremy...... hugely appreciated.



Life is good.

Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

Tuesday morning 7.30 and Mickey and I ran down to the council tip 10 miles from home.

The ton bag was just too heavy to handle alone and get up the four steel steps to get it into the massive dumpsters.

So we unloaded, a 3 minute job and then headed back home as I had a lecture to do at Kings College Hospital for 75 attendees.

Typically, the M2 was screwed and so were some detours too.



Made it to my lecture with 15 minutes to spare.

Saw this on Facebook this week.

Memory flashback.

One of the troop trains we used to travel on when I was in the military, I spent 4 days on one in 1981 travelling to Namibia.



Had a rough work week this week and Thursday evening I needed to find some head space.

Walked up to the farm.

Saw the beauty around me, and took these four photos, stood in one spot, turning through 360 degrees, one in each wind direction.

Looking over the Thames river toward Essex.



Looking back toward home, over to the Medway river and Isle of Grain on the left.



Eastward.



And of course the result. Had also spoken to Charlie the farmer for a while.



On Friday I was back in London for the day.

Met a gentleman who works for UPS Couriers in St Thomas Hospital in the lifts.

Now most of us like them as they usually deliver parts for our projects.

He was very proud of his job, and the rest of his attire was honestly immaculate

Asked if I could photograph his shoes, he agreed.

This certainly was the highlight of my week.

Someone loving their job.



This time of year, despite getting colder gives awesome sunrises and sunsets.

This morning I was greeted by this sunrise.




Headed out for a 60th birthday party..... second one for the year. Remember Dennis?

Some of you know I collect car/truck/bike license plates.

I have all sorts and some pretty nice stuff.

However, I have been looking for a vintage SAP license plate for many years.

These pics are pretty cool, they contain vintage cars....


However, I am looking for an old SAP number plate.

There has to be one somewhere. (I do not want a new reproduction)



















So if you have one to trade, sell, donate or whatever.....

Please send me a PM to let me know

Cheers.

Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

Thought I would just add some random pics.

NASCAR Truck racing stuff......

What keeps Dennis busy at crazy hours of the day and night.

Build them, break them, repeat.

So this is what comes home from the various tracks they race at. Often thrown into the walls at 150 plus mph.






When any of he 13 trucks get destroyed on track, they have to get rebuilt in the shop.

Every track has a car built to specification for that track, now you get why it's such an expensive sport.

Stripped down to a frame......




New sheet metal gets fabricated and a new carbon fibre nose added.




We had to pop in at Mittler Bros Racing to check the metal work of the truck they were rebuilding again.



Next up.... paint.





Then Dennis gets onto the fun part.

After the paint dries, he starts the wrap and stickers.






And then it is ready to be thrown up against a wall somewhere across the USA again, in the pursuit of a podium spat.




Nice to be working on these 358 cubic inch displacement V8 motors, pushing out around 750bhp.

Later.

Indeed.



Thought I would share these two videos.

Very different, but both made me smile.

And we all need to smile.

Anyone for a bus ride?




And of course a bit of history.




Enjoy the weekend.

Life is good .

Guess they got all the answers they needed Bill.



Will do a random non car related update for the stalker brigade some time.

Got a message from Nicola yesterday that a parcel had landed for me.

It would be delivered to the Crematorium where she now works by someone in a very smart stripey suit.

Not sure yet who it is from as usernames often differ to real names.

But it seems to be from Ireland.

So thank you.

I will get it in two or three weeks when she gets back from sunny Cyprus where she is headed for a winter break.




Later.

Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

Karma is an awesome mistress.

Last week I got a PM via the Chevy Truck Forum from a New Zealander, who lives and works in Australia but was somewhere in Europe travelling with his partner in a camper van for the last six months.
He needed a recommendation on a non franchised garage to carry out some maintenance including new shocks all round on their camper van.

So we went to mobile Whatsapp chat mode.
I found and shared some garages but it seemed that everyone is booked quite solid.
So they decided to come to England, then fly to Iceland for a week on Friday and get the van sorted once back here.

I offered them my home as a stop over to use as a base while regrouping and doing London touristy stuff.
I think they were a bit surprised but I managed to convince them to stay ove a few days.
Of course lots of car and truck was spoken and we spent some time in my garage too. Arron's dad is a mechanic in NZ so it was a good time.

The cats both loved them and having the company and Caroline got herself a cat fix.

As always it was great, like when the McMurphy's were here, to have company in the house and being able to spend time with like minded people.

They previously did 42 states in the USA over 8 months and covered 24000 miles on that trip.

So had this on my drive for a few days while they slept in a real bed.



Arron's Chevy thats in storage in Australia at the moment.

Link to his Build: http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=590143



It seems winter is here.

When I work in my office ( I work from home ) in winter the small oil heater keeps the chill at bay.
I had a personal wager not to turn the heating on till end October. Made it to 6 November though winter has not yet gone bitter cold.

What is funny though is that both cats often do a double decker in my office to be near the heat.



Of course this is more like what they like...... toasty

How I found Dukey, next to his latest hairball. Bleughh.



Friday today means weekend, unless I get a call out to work in London tomorrow.
