JD Classics Run Feb 2011
Amazing what little treasures it’s possible to find with the odd bit of web surfing! A ‘gander’ at Pistonheads revealed the name of a Company that I’d never come across before JD Classics, heard of them? Well take a peek at their website and drool. In short this is a company specialising in the restoration and sale of ‘classic meatl –
A plan was thought through which would iinvolve meeting at Lakeside ( thurrock ) and heading off on a quick 70 mile blat around Essex –
So we set off from Lakeside after the banter ( which for some reason centred on me cleaning the car with serviettes), the local Boys In Blue declined the suggestion for a photo with the cars ( possibly too lardy after their Mc’d’s breakfast ).
So we cracked on –
The run was damp, not so much in the air but the roads, a shame as we couldnt explore the corners to the nth degree, but if i said we’d been through 50 ‘s’ bdends this morning i think that’d be an under estimate! Awesome!
JD CLassics. Words really cant describe this place, whatever anyone says will be treated as an ‘oh yeah’ ( with a disbelieving snort of derision)…….put it this way….in the more down to earth part of their sales/restoration set up were 3 ( yep 3 ) Mk1 Lotus Cortinas, given that their speciality seems to lie more in the Jag area maybe just maybe you get the picture? No? Ok how about 4 ‘Silk Cut’ Walkinshaw Jag racers? No? Do yourself a favour if you’re into classic cars –
Here endeth the lesson, just about to download the info from the data logger and upload my pics from the day –
Good company , good banter. Perhaps we need to change the Club Motto!
