    Hello! Welcome to Mart's Garage Road trip Div.
    The event we honestly thought would never happen. The VHRA Hot Rod Races on Pendine Beach! Hoorah! This is part one of a 2 part video. Many thanks to Trevor for collecting video footage on my behalf. It made a massive difference.
    Can I give a big shoutout for Neil who worked tirelessly to make this happen, aided by the Sidewinders. A fantastic achievement all round. Thanks guys.
    So sit back, relax and join Mart, the 33 and the Crusty Flatty on the Pendine Races Roadtrip (TM).

    I just put up part 2.
    Dean, I snagged the footage off Nicks video showing the roadster pickup. He gave me permission to use it in my video.

  15. When you have time some time I would love to hear the full story of my favorite RPU! (Maybe a dedicated thread????)How long ago did you sell it? And how did it end up in England??

  17. There is a story on the car in the Jalopy Journal. Been there about 12 years. The complete story on the car was printed in Hop Up Vol. 12 No. 1. I told the US part of the car's history, and Steve told how he acquired the car (in pieces) the car's story in England.

    There are things that would be unusual either way for drivers...they looked very fitting to every landscape...And of Course the Greatness of Across the Pond Excellence...;)

    The closest I get to that is Highway Fast lane or One Way Streets...

  22. I think they just flipped the negative!! Or maybe it's because of their metric film!
