Cars in the park
« on: August 04, 2019, 06:02:07 am »
Got the 500 out for cars in the park today at swartkops, good collection of old skool cars and bikes, have not fired up the DR for months, 1 kick with flip flops, the manual suzuki decompressor works really well when you have it taped
twin shox, twin drum air cooled

Thanks,  :thumleft:
There were very few bikes just the DJ bikes and the odd one around the park, I have taken a few pics,
Also saw the beer chaos, ran out of Windhoek after 1 st run, lack of staff ,typical of the dickhead organisers , surely they expected a big crowd lots advertising about biggest car show in Africa, was quite warm as well I bet a lot of overheating for cars leaving, looked like mayhem, a few more pics

I had the exact same Alfa Julia Super. Biggest regret selling that car  :(

Taste differs, thankfully, but for me the E-type is just so beautiful, even more beautiful than this lovely Merc.

Blower Bentley, that thing on the front is a crank driven supercharger, it’s the detail I love, the suspension is leaf springs but encased in leather sheaths. 👍😎
