Bacon & Brakes

Post by KevinB »

Hi Folks.

It was the first meeting of Bacon & Brakes this morning. therhynd.com/bacon-and-brakes

Held at The Rhynd Cafe, KY16 0DR every 1st Sunday of the month from March to September and organised by motoring journalist Ed Forster.

Maybe a bit too early for classics to be out on the road but plenty of modernish cars.

As my J-H is in about a million pieces, exaggeration but feels like it, we went in my wife's 2004 Smart Roadster Coupe which didn't look out of place.

Kevin,
That looked to be a good get together. Some interesting bits of kit there.
I fully intended getting the Interceptor out yesterday but domestic chores took over. Bad planning on my part. Must try harder.

Yes, it was a good turn out. Probably about half the number of cars there that would be in a few months time.

Between the red Merc Coupe and the Mazda MX3 mk3, is one of the rarest cars - the Alfa Arna. A Nissan Cherry body with an Alfa engine.

Another month gone by another meet at Leuchers. Quieter today, I think there was a supercars gathering at Dundee Museum of Transport. A few images though.

Rocky, search "The Rhynd" on Facebook. They have posted more images.

The Pantera was fired up whilst it was on the transporter. Best described as Loud.
