Love retro vw's. Have owned a number of retro motorbikes, mainly RD's(lc350's etc.) and most of the music I listen to is old, led zep, deep purple, the who, pink floyd, canned heat etc. I don't go out of my way to like retro things and I dont even think about it I guess. Its just things I like.

Mainly into old cars, had tons of stuff over the years, at one time six months was a record for me to keep a car :lol: , had a few Hillman Imps, Mini's, one MK2 escort, a MK1 3Door Golf, an Alfa 155 which was nice but mega expensive for bits, tons of others i cant remember, went through an American car stage too, highlights of that were a nice 68 Dodge Charger and a 70 Mach1 Mustang Shaker.

Currently on my fifth Capri, a 3.0S i finished rebuilding last year, also got a 94 MK3 VW Polo i'm puting a GT engine in.

Also as indicated by my name and avitar i'm into guitars and classic rock/blues music, did have a Fender Strat and a nice Jaguar but own just the Strat now which i repainted and artificialy aged (it's a modest Mexican Strat not an expensive or rare US one), been learning to play for five years now, started by learning Jimi Hendrix stuff, only just starting to get it together with improvised solos etc.
Also play some Free, The Darkness and AC/DC, would love an Angus Young signiture Gibson SG but wouldn't be able to afford the £1400 asking price, maybe someday though .
