    OSF flag at Spa

    OSF Dutch crew arrived at Spa Classic
  2. I foresee not many problems getting this mk1 on German registration If the UK paperwork is correct.
  3. I am doing the Retroject conversion at the moment. Ford Capri mk1 facelift 2600 V6 (not RS) You have two options, fuel only or fuel & ignition. I do them both and my crank pulley is at the machine shop getting converted to recieve a 36-1 trigger wheel.
  4. Id say, flathead V8. Its a decent engine with good power and looks. Put a Holley sniper EFI kit on that intake and you've smooth modern cruiser.
  5. Scott, that was in JPEG format and they couldn't work with that unless its big in size
  6. Can someone suply me the OSF logo Not in JPEG format but the format developers use. We call it Raster format in Holland not sure how its called in the UK. I am trying to get a flag made in Holland but they couldn't work with teh small JPEG file I deliverd. I want a black flag with the OSF logo in white msg-6294-0-56356700-1497238040_thumb.jpg.url

    Just plain wrong!

    Is that Smokey's Merc ??
  8. Take in account, DAB+ is the only radio source within a just few years as FM is phasing out in Europe allready. Retro radios are a waste of money if they come without the DAB+. There are allready DAB+ transmitters with the bleutooth and USB features you can stick in your siggy lighter socket that transmits a signal you can recieve on your old skool radio. Must say the one I have is still humming as I still tracing the noise interference caused by my old skool genuine Ford Capri electronics..
  9. Hmmm thats why we only drive OSF... No lezzy window thing, just pull the wrist en turn... allways work even with a flat battery... the most modern we have... a '83 fezzy mk2.... the one after that a....... '83 fezzy mk1.. all the others (Capri's ) way older
  10. Had a good days out. Went in on wednesday traveling from Dover - along the southcoast, Hastings, Brighton to Southampton to collect GT40 parts ending at Kings Sutton near Banbury on a campsite that this year apeared to be an ant farm.... Did about 500miles that day so we crashed after a few Scotch. Thursday when we discovered the ant issue we moved the tent to another ( and only !! ) spot on the campsite with less ants and manged to have a few days to enjoy. Saturday of to Santapod where they tried to rip me off at 11am at the gate. 1 hour to early, thats 70 quit sir, I turned around and waited an hour ending up just to pay 20 quit for camping. Saturday was quit and sunday we had a good show. It apeared everybody was leaving early and even the traders started packing their stuf at 3pm. At 4pm most of the entrands where gone and at 5pm the showground was as good as empty so we left also, back to the ant farm where we already had paid for. Will look for another campsite next time... Monday we left at 0830 to vissit Rally Design to get some parts and a company called GTForte that apeared to be disapeared as both adresses we had where no good. By luck we didn't pay for the ordered parts. We had the ferry back on 15.45pm and arrived home at 20.30. Guess we did about 1100/ 1150 miles total. Will be back in about six weeks for Dragstalgia & Silverstone Classic.
  11. Fibresports is the original manufactorer of the genuine x pack wide body kit. They still list them. Smith & Deaking is bad fitment in my experiance (warped en wrong) In Germany, Peter Wade from WST still makes the extreme Suhe wide body kits.
  12. Got mine today ? Booked the ferry also today.
  13. Well, done mate. It must have be me pointing you in the right direction for legal registration. We have a V8 powered Capri that went the same route. Nowadays the 10-1973 rules have been extended to 1998. For that 4.0 engine, you might consider a home made "log style" sheet metal intake with the TB up front. That can sit as low as you want.
  14. Alex ( co pilot of Michel ) has to do 3 rally events for rally licencing. Most important, "finish" three rally events. Meaning Michel can not drive on the edge this year cause whatever happens they have to finish three events. One of these rally events, ELE Rally is at the same weekend Classic Ford Show is. Alex and Michel are trying to do as much events as possible hoping they will count officialy. They just had their first yesterday but I am not sure if it counts. If they can manage they will go to the Classic Ford show. But ALex his licensing has priority as Michel is building a GP4 BGD Escort mk2 to compete with next year. We had an issue with pets to look after that weekend.. Not many we trust with doing that. In the pic I am holding two.. We, JP & Linda might have a small change to go. If we can we sure be there. "If" we go, we might go in a rental van and not a Ford Capri. We have a GT40 project going on and like to combine the trip with getting essential parts from GT40 supliers in the UK. Our '73 Ford F250 is running a bucket to the mile with the new updated engine and might not be big enough to safely haul the tanks, glass windows, rollcage and so on + campstuff so I am thinking to rent a diesel van for a long weekend and collect the parts and do Classic Ford Show. That might aswell not be a Ford van, so it will be camping only and no standpass. Guess those modern diesel vans run cheap on fuel compared to an old fasion heavy weight 6,7litre V8.which consumes 1litre of lpg or petrol every 1.8 miles.... Its still about 1200+ miles to go... in all our plans. If we can make it, which we sure like to, we will be there!!
