Apart from geeking out over bikes (and very occasionaly riding them
I love messing about with old cars, back down to single figures at the moment- (must try harder). Have been buying and selling anything 50s/60s/70s for about 20 years now. Had early 911's, lots of german stuff- 2002Tii's, 3.0 CSL's, an ur-quattro, Italian stuff, Lancia's, a dozen or so Alfa's, a few Jensens, a Mustang, lots of SAAB's, Volvo Amazons, FIAT's, Citroen DS's and so on. Had quite a few old Rally cars over the years too including a few that would be rather valuable now- a few Escorts Mk2s, Lotus Sunbeam, ex-works Opel Kadett Coupe (Tony Pond/ Anders Kullang), SAAB 96V4, Volvo Amazon (ex- Monte Carlo and Winter Challenge), Volvo 144S to name a few.
Motor Racing, done a bit of Historic racing and rallying, not as much as I would like due to funds. Currently doing a little road rallying, cheap and good fun and we win every now and then......which is nice!
Putting a deal together to race at the next Le Mans Classic in 2010 which will be a dream come true
I also collect motor racing related items from 1950-1985, especially anything Le Mans and RAC rally related ie- books, posters, programes, medals, trophies, passes, stickers, old magazines etc. Been collecting since my early teens and now have filled a room at home and I am slowly filling a large building at work. This stuff is starting to get expensive now so I have slowed a little.
Away from cars I love food and I am quite obsessed with cooking- quite happily spend 3 or 4 hours a night making something special (whilst getting pissed at the same time) Unfortunately this means I'm getting fatter by the month and soon I will have to weld two bikes together side by side
I bought a boat a few years ago but don't get the time to sail, its sat father forlornly on the upper car park on the Farm. If I had more time in my life I would love to get out to sea on her once in a while. With time this could be my next big interest.
Finally I used to play Hammond organ and electric piano in a band with some mates- I was shit
But we had some good times- and thats the most important thing.
