Default Brighton

Sunday June 2nd

Joined the Kit & Classic Car Run from Greenwich Park, London to Madeira Drive on the Brighton sea front.

About 500 cars take part in this annual outing. There were a couple of other Tributes entered.

As you can see we got into 'Period Costume' - a sort of 1960s style as I stitched some floral fabric into the outside trouser seams . . . plus a couple of bright shirts.

The route takes you down smaller roads, with a stop off point or two. The Gardens at Penshurst Place are very impressive, with a good coffee and bun.

At Brighton the Kit cars were lined up by the fencing, so there is little chance to interact with the public. After an hour or so we went off for lunch.

If I have another project it will be putting a bmw motorcycle engine in a 2CV, plus a few other bits . . .

Default Kits & Classics on the 'Crick' High Wycombe

Just spent today at a show called Classics & Kits 'on the Crick' at Naphill near High Wycombe. It might be called this because it is a couple of football pitches which are not dead smooth . . .

Entries of all sorts of cars & Motorcycles are accepted and cover about 75% of the area; plus a music / announcement stage and catering on the other 25%.

Warm and sunny for the most part with about 350 vehicles. Very well organised, friendly, easy going and not crowded. Visitors were notable for being careful and fellow entrants were chatty and pleased to talk about their cars.

We were there from 10.30am to 3.30pm, took a picnic and met up with some friends. A good day out, culminating with a visit to the stage for a Bronze award in the Custom & Kit Car category - hopefully there were more than 3 entrants.

Default Total Kit Car magazine


Good to see a four page spread on the car in Total Kit Car / TKC September / October issue - most of it is old news to readers of this thread.

Fine publicity for Tribute . . . especially now that they are making 275GTB panels for kit builders.

Of course the car will be on show lunchtime on Sept 7th at the Pelican Inn west of Hungerford, plus tea at the Whitchurch Silk Mill.

Default Tyres

The GTB uses 15" wheels and for some time now we have used Vredestein Sprint Classics 215/70 15 on the rear wheels [and Conti Premium Contacts on the front 205/60 15].

The Vredesteins have been fault free and no worry, with quite good enough grip in all conditions and have lasted for almost 18,000 miles. At about 200GBP EACH they are expensive, but the tread pattern looks fine and they fill the arch well to give a 'period' style. I admit to having little idea as to the top speed of my car, but within reason they are stable as well as comfortable . . .

We have just fitted a second pair to the rear wheels, but the front tyres have plenty of tread left, after 12,000 miles
