Speedweek Roll-call who's going and when?

Post by Garage » Sun 03 Aug 2014, 03:32

With Speedweek just around the corner, how about a show of hands of who is going and when, as well as what you're taking.
(Let's keep this to who will actually show up - seems like there are many more who say they want to but never come through. You guys should rather be out in the shop working on your rides..... :twisted: :twisted: :lol: :lol: ;) )

Last year I went twice (long story!) and the second weekend was dead even though it was expected to be the bigger one.

I'll be there first weekend, but it seems most of our Cape Town bunch will be there for the second this time. The Wednesday public holiday should spread things out a bit too...

Barry: 20-22 Sept. '28/29 Lakes Roadster. (There's a chance I may take my '48 Fleetline, but it sounds like I have a noisy big end :cry: )

We have been planning this for months, me and a few of my good friends are going. I wanted to take the Cuda but it's nowhere near finished and my deadline was a little ambitious....trickling cash flow and waiting for online ordered parts have the final say I'm afraid. I hope to take it next year.

I started a little Whats app group and called it "Make Speedweek Happen" so everyone invited are kept updated on who needs to take what, contributions, registration etc.
Worked well and we are all amped and ready.

We just going for the experience, to get away form it all.

I will be there from the 25th to the 28th.

Cheers

and I think its best to leave on Wendsday for the last weekend as to avoid the Cape Town Bunch.

Im looking at second week this year. still deciding if im driving up with a friend or taking a Mustang up. I wanted to take Barrys old 49 Ford up... but just havent got around to it... maybe too busy at work or maybe a lack of motivation....

Pity it won't be ready William, I'd love to see it on the 'pan - but make sure you get there anyway to get your ass in gear to make it ready for 2015 ;)

@Mark - C'mon, since you gave up on that silly (and expensive) idea to put out a magazine that actually encourages excellence and gets people thinking how to do things better, you must have plenty of spare time and cash on your hands ;)
Hell plan a trip early enough for 2015 and I may even be able to give you something to drive :mrgreen:
