Editorial ramblings


Wow! From a famine to a feast. The last edition was very thin and I did wonder if the newsleter was coming to the end of its life but lo and behold it's back with a bang. This must be one of the largest newsletters ever. Thanks to everyone who contributed and maybe it will encourage others to write something for the next edition.


Mark Saperstein, the builder andowner of a fuel injected Guzzi powered 'hopper, lives in Arizona where they have 'car and coffee' events. People bring along all sorts of exotic vehicles to an informal meet. He has attended a number of them and here's a link to photographs of a recent one. See if you can spot the 'hopper.

Here are some pictures that Mark sent me of a meet in April - his car looks great and doesn't the weather look great as well?

Ireland tends to be open to ideas from the USA and there are a number of similiar events held here. There's even one in Limerick and I popped along in Quicksilver to see what was what.

Most of the cars were classics - some were surprising new to my eyes (VW Golfs??). The one I really liked was a Citroën DS19 which still looks, to me, very futuristic 60 years later. Quicksilver attracted quite a bit of attention despite being very dirty. It was last polished before the North York Moor Run a few months back. The usual questions were asked and answered. I stayed about ½ hour as I had other things to do. I'll pop along again when the weather improves - I got the impression that the real classics/vintage cars are only brought out if there's abolutely no chance of rain.
