    Most recent addition is an Early T2 VW Bay Window camper with a Dormobile roof. Expensively restored by the previous owner it has a 1776cc twin port motor on a pair of single choke Dell' Ortos.

    Current restoration project is the Ford Pilot V8 Woodie. A UK car but bought in Holland as a dismantled, abandoned project. Slowly sorting the mechanicals and metal bodywork. Will almost certainly outsource the woodwork. This is how it looked in the 1960s.

    This is what it looked like when I got it...

    In the back of the garage awaiting a fresh engine is my MGB GT V8 track car. Not an original V8, I built this from a collection of abandoned projects, including a crashed MGRV8. It features my own 4 link coil sprung rear axle. Have done sprints as well as track days and it went quite well.

    Wow. Some epic restoration work underway there, as well as the track project. Very impressive indeed.

    Massive thanks for sharing.

    Thank you. I thought I needed something to do in retirement but somehow Princess Christina seems to have a never-ending list of more important jobs...:rolleyes:

    If anyone's interested I can post a few pics of the MGB build and the Woodie restoration, although the Woodie ones are generally very specific things for my reference.
    Here are some more of the MG to be going on with :)
