Excellent pics.

Looks like I missed a great day. :boohoo:

That blue car with the GT rear arches and blended rear bumper is interesting. That bumper looks like the type I had and resold a year or so ago.

Anyone know any story?

:beer:


I spoke to the guy and he said as far as he knew it was a Gemballa factory fit bodykit, it's one piece of fibreglass all the way form the front to the back along the sills. Looked really nice and a bit different, in fact there were a few nice little quirks all along the car which made you see straight away this isn't just a normal car with a CGT kit. unusual wipers, mirrors and spoiler for example.

He said he's had the car for 20 odd years and took it to Silverstone recently and had Porsche GB people crawling all over it because they had no idea what it is. The wheels were his own addition.


Pity I missed the chance to chat to him. Sounds like a nightmare if it gets damaged to replace or repair. The rear bumper I had I couldn't find much info about, but it was made of proper PU with part numbers etc, not the cheap fiberglass that my other panels are made from. But even the fit on that was terrible and would have needed huge amounts of work to look 'factory fit'. I suspect there is a lot of filler in that car smoothing it all in to the existing panels, which personally I don't like as there should be joint lines between each panel as the factory would do. Certainly an interesting car though and I would love to pour over it myself some day!

i had a great time at the Ace, I was an Ace Virgin, really liked it.

great turn out. some lovely cars, might have to do something with the works ride.... looked very rough in comparison.

AGM was interesting too. i think i will make the effort and go to the future AGM's too.

Nice to chat to some friends and meet a few new people too.

Slightly embarrassed with the S when the starter failed to perform as I was leaving, thanks to whoever it was that pushed me. Oddly it started fine at the petrol station just down the road, must have left radio on! D'Oh

thanks for organising, it will be a regular on my calendar from now on.

cheers

John, him and his wife are regulars at SE meetings, they've been at the Ace for the last 4 years and were at the last couple of Brooklands summer meets too. I can't for the life of me remember his name but I think he's on here as 'polish barron' or similar. The car is definitely distinctive. It's an auto too for memory.

ah, thats probably been the problem - too far south for me to regularly attend, and those meetings are normally early in the season when my car is still in bit's from the over-running winter projects!!

Hopefully it'll be in one piece for a while so I'll clear the diary for the next strip 'daan sath'!

Yeah but afterward I did add "only the bottom half".
