Still out of fashion and always uncool

I got lost in my archives today, looking for posts to include in a Spinneyhead collection. Along the way I rediscovered my online version of Out Of Fashion And A Trifle Uncool (alternate title Ten Years Asleep). I’ll have to repackage that for Lulu/Amazon distribution as well. Re-reading bits of it I’m embarassed by the clunkiness of some of the prose, sad that I’ve lost some of the optimism on display and amused by some of the phrases I turned.

Hot Rod 7s

I recently got, from Ebay, this kit of a BMW Dixi.


The Dixi was basically an Austin 7 made under licence in Germany. I’m thinking of turning it into a rod, so this post about hotrod Austin 7s was interesting. I may use some of the stuff available from Scale Link in 1:24th, which includes a Rover V8, the quintessential british rodding motor.
