…as late as ever, sorry

 

I see I’ve got a new web site, what do you reckon?

 

A fair bit to mention since last time – a fairish amount of motor bike racing, plenty of push-biking, more than my fair share of house painting, as much work as ever, and a new tool box. So I’ve been keeping out of mischief.

 

It was the Ulster GP last weekend, a week without any rain made a welcome change, ta very much as ever for all the support, and to all the lads for a top effort.

 

Before that I was doing a bit of endurance push biking with the lads from hope, ta very much to simon and the boys for the teeth gritting. It was a proper wet old lot, you wouldn’t have believed there was as much mud in the universe as there was at the mountain mayhem race, good do though, I was well ready for me bath.

 

What else?? I went and picked up my new tool box, that was an adventure! I’ll get some pics of her up.

 

My road trip to sweden was a success, oh and I’ve got another engine for my front room, can you see it parked next to one of the trucks? I’ve got a prize for any one who can tell me what wouldn’t fit in the picture? Only a keen eye will see it, I reckon I’ve got a pair of handle bar grips and a strong jar of horse radish for the winner, if you can guess I’ll be more than impressed. Ta to Chris and Neil at Kelltruck for the top job.

 

What else???????? Oh i hear danny has been keeping you informed with that twatting business – I hope he has kept it clean and kept the onions sweet????

 

What do you recon to some of the other pics??? A few things are taking shape don’t you reckon??

 

I reckon there could be a bit of a calandar job in the pipeline as well, none of that posing sameold same-old shit, it’ll be a calander I’d have in the garage and not the titted meat patch varity, I’ll get my finger out and keep you informed.

 

Cheers

    Guy,

    My keen eye has spotted that there doesnt appear to be a mug of yorkshire tea in this pic! My guess is that your mugs of tea are that big they wouldn’t fit…

    If the calendar has been suggested by Tyco for Charity it was a e-mail I sent them 2 months ago. Your sites fab by the way. X

  3. Afternoon All!
    Well Tip of the pipe comes to mind, as does the walkway (Better cover up the clock before photos in future!) Ladder, End of Brush,Mug…What has come to mind is make of the lorry….All I know is is that it isn’t a Foden! (Before they went all All Paccar)
    Lack of tools come to mind as well! or could it be the manufacturers symbol on the back of the cab? Guessing Scania or to be really controversial Volvo!
    Oh and before the missus says anthing about engines in the house (Nice V8 by the way…) turn them into coffee tables bit of glass and loctite should sort you! From clutter to art deco in 5 mins…
    Till next time!

  12. James 'fat arms' hardy says:

    P.S- is it that the left eminox stack doesn’t fit in?

  13. Teresa CM says:

  14. andy says:

    Volvo next to ya buggy,reason for sweden trip? that the boosted one, caged up the lot? Saw the for sale add for it if so, few months back! Pure porn! Blast it through benniworth a time or two if its the one please chief :)

  15. Ben Hagerty says:

    I’m guessing that it’s a road bike of some description? I can see what I think is a wing mirror just poking into the picture…

  16. Sam McCarthy says:

    cracking old job on the roads the other day. Website doesn’t look too shabby either chief!

  17. John says:

    Hi guy, is that turbo right on that v8 lump if I remember rightly they run along the back of the lump with the compressor inlet facing out on the off side of the lump. Could be wrong though it’s been a while since I’ve had a cab up on a 143, unless it’s a 16 ltr lump maybe. Anyway I’m off for a brew and a kip, keep em lit boy!

    • John says:

      Thinking on its not a 16ltr coz they’ve got the square rocker covers unlike the 14ltr that has v shaped ones as in the pic, something deffo not right with how that turbos fitted though boy.

  18. mr bodger [volvo tec] says:

    I’m also guessing the new toolbox is too big it’s missing from the photo.

  21. is it that whacking great turbo that wont fit ?

    remember being an apprentice and removing the skin on my right hand as i lend on one that was tranversly mounted a little further back ? Get the picks of your box up , just spanked an arm and left testicle on a lovely KRL number from our local highwayman

  27. Carole says:

    Hi Guy,

    Tom thinks it’s the gear box that’s missing – I think it’s a packet of Jaffa’s!! :)

    great new site,like all of it including the tea stains. congrats on winning the ulster grand prix and what style i may add, looks like you’ve scared off that niggling racing hex thats been dogging you this year, locked and loaded methinks. someone correct me if i’m wrong but no Alan it’s not the gorgeous merlin, that lump in the photo is big and butch the merlin is sleek and sexy,theres some sweet sounding engines out there but the merlin is the sweetest. if it had of been guys merlin i would of said the object missing from the photo would be the rest of one of A.V.Roes finest the lancaster bomber. Good luck for september i’m rootin for you. x

  29. Phil Hutchinson says:

    Well, manifold has Scania written on it so my bete would be it’s for a DAF…kidding!

    Not sure what it’s for but it’d def give the narrow boat a bit of umpf ;)

  31. Kevin Cleveland says:

    Would it be what appears to be a red motorcycle reflected in the paint just rear of the cab window of that shiny blue and silver truck?

  32. Kevin says:

    Reflected in the cab just rear of the window, looks like a red bike?
    Great website. It’s been fun lookin around.
    Continued success-
    Kevin

  33. Darren Wrudd says:

  34. Niklas H says:

    Hi Guy.
    I see that you have a picture of VÖX:s old/new Amazon.
    I guess you bought it of him hence the trip to Sweden.
    Sad to see it leave the country.
    But I recon that you will take good care of it.
    Can’t wait for 2013 to start so I can use my new calendar.
    Kind Regards.
    Niklas
