New guy from Yorkshire
« on: September 14, 2016, 01:32:16 PM »
Hi, what an awesome site. I'm new on here and
I come from West Yorkshire, home of last of the summer wine. I'm building a 94" wb topolino nostalgia car. It has a bop engine with rootes blower, home built high rise inlet and edelbrock carb, hot cam and modified to run on alcohol. A lot of the stuff is home brewed as I'm a blacksmith by trade and the shop
Comes in useful.

Welcome!

Blacksmithing is a "neat" trade and some day I would like to try my hand at it.

Luke - I like Pontiacs, 329 cubic inches must not be stock.  Anyone who endeavors to design and make their own parts has my respect.  Alan

'Ey up matie.  Hows' it up North. lol

  I've still got a couple of Pontiac parts kicking around in the garage.

 Happy Motoring
I'd rather be racing than working.
