    London anyone?

    Hi all...long time Pro Tourer here looking to see whos around England. If its around the London area even better! And East London even better but that may already be asking too much.

    Anyhow...been living in London for a couple years now but just brought over my Firebird and ready to enjoy it again...once summer hits of course. Would be great to meet up at some point. The Ace Cafe isnt terribly far from me, but I do have plans to head to Bicester Heritage later in the year and perhaps Goodwood Revival as well.

    Look forward to seeing whos out here!

    Excellent...that's actually very close to me.

    As for engine stuff...I wouldn't call myself an expert but I've rebuilt the original engine and now upgraded this one. Plus my day job is doing engineering for the small OEMs in the UK. Just finished the DB11 project. Drop me a text and we can chat 07506278363

    Surrey here. I’ve been here since 2002 and I’m 2 years into building a 68 Camaro.

    York, a little bit north of London!

    3 years into my '69 build that has changed directions so many times I'm unsure if it will ever finish.

    I was pleasantly surprised the amount of 1st gen GM owners i have met through selling the unwanted parts from my build (in my local area!). Two guys had '68 camaro's who took my original re-worked sub with everything ride-tech sold, another took the ride-tech 4 link/muncie 4 spd & 12bolt rear end, another took the wheel and front seats. all which i restored when i originally planned on using them, waste of time that was. Then I discovered this site and it all changed!

    It was stuck in body shop for 12 months, it's still not painted, sitting in primer while i finish off the finer touches. Ill try upload some pictures.

    Would be nice to see if anybody else in the UK wonders this forum...?

    Cheers,

    Jake
