Still Not Available In Cans...

Hartlepools finest.


Took some days off and went to see my Mam in Teesside. Had a day trip to Whitby while we were there:-

Captain Cook and friend:-

Whitby from the west cliff:-

Whale bone arch:-

Whitby Abbey, beloved of Goffs and Dracula fans:-

Funky old ice cream Landy:-

Top of the 199 steps (to the Abbey):-

And bottom of 199 steps (note comedy road):-

Then it was time to eat:-

Then we had a go on this - 1931 Sentinel Steam Bus:-

And there was a skatepark too:-

Not a bad trip all in all.

Cash From Chaos

...or selling dodgy strides anyhow.

Johnny Rotten would choke on his Country Life smeared crumpets.

World of Tanks #2

Well...not really tanks, but lots of military jibber - went to the Militaria thing at Stoneleigh last Sunday with Griffer.

Lots of things to see and buy, some strange, some stranger...

BMW R75 wehrmachtgespanne - 750 outfit with a driven sidecar wheel:-

British airmen - lost in time:-

Harley DAvidson WLA - 750 flathead with all the accessories - the stall holder wanted £10500 for this:-Pasty looking German Feld Gendarme - all available to purchase for those `can't be bothered to leave the house' weekends:-

Re-enactors were everywhere:-
And in other news - during a rather enjoyable Crazy Horse rally I noticed two hairline cracks in the top yoke of the Velocette - where the handlebars attach. So one very expensive EBay purchase later, a replacement:-
Painted in finest black Finnegans Smoothrite. Ho hum...
