Colin sells his fasty

30 Aug

It was a sad day at RSVP when Colin finally decided to let the fasty go. The new owner had requested it to be raised slightly and to be put back onto 17″ fuch. He shipped a set to colin for him to fit. It’s a shame that such a cool car has had to leave the RSVP line up but it is all for a good cause. Colin is now on the look out for something very early, right hand drive and of the split bus variety. We’ll let you know what he finds. (Photos copyright Paul Pace)

Brett freshens up his ghia’s dash

30 Aug

When Brett bought his ghia the dash had been painted satin black and it did not match the rest of the car. As most of the car and interior had been painted metallic brown at some point in it’s past, Brett decided he would paint the dash the same. He got a base coat paint match at his local auto paint shop and set to work prepping, painting and lacquering. (Photos copyright Brett Elesmore)

RSVP, DTA and Ditch Dubbers cruise to Bug Jam 26

29 Aug

On the morning of Friday 20 July RSVP met up with their good friends the DTA and Ditch Dubbers to cruise up to Bug Jam 26. Joining them at their meeting point was a camera crew from Togethia Media who were filming their cruise for a section of the Bug Jam 26 Television programme. A little set back with a quickly fixed break down delayed their set off but everyone was soon cruising in convoy on their way to Santa Pod Race Way. After a couple of short stops, a huge downpour of rain and a two hour queue to get in, all arrived safe and parked up in the club camping spot ready to enjoy the weekend ahead.
