Used to be into classic cars;
Jaguar E-type, Citroën DS among others
but now it's all classic bikes of which I have a few
that I have build/rebuild.

Here's my latest:
An 1941 INDIAN engined supercharged Bonneville racer
that I build, put in a box



and air-freighted over the pond ( from my native Denmark )
to Bonneville









Didn't set no record but I'll be back this year with a vengeance.
Just finished modifying the engine and test running it.
Don't know how many of you have heard a 1941 type 741 INDIAN
running, ( put put put pop put put put pop pop )
but if you have, you'd know it sure as he** didn't sound like this:


Turn up sound and click: VIDEO

"OK MATE" indeed! I love that Mini, it's got it all!

Done tastefully in BRG with a white rood to keep yourself cool, I'm guessing.

Love the wheels, and nice details, down to the big running lights and hood straps.

I had two Minis back in the day. My first one was a BRG Morris Mini Van (commercial vehicle) with no rear windows or back seats, then an Austin Mini Estate, the little station wagon with the wood frame on the the back half and barn doors in the rear. A "woodie" in other words.

Wish I had had the smarts to keep the Estate, it was a beautiful little car.

"ghost car"

Read this article today about this 1939/1940 Pontiac "Ghost Car". The article was on AOL and stated the car is made of plexiglass for the 1939/1940 Worlds Fair in New York. It went on to say there may have been two made but this is the only known to still be around.

Body was molded by Rohm & Hass, the inventor of plexiglass, to show off the revolutionary new material.

I believe only 3 were built for a steel company in the 30's.
