  • Our trip over from Holland

    We would like to thank everyone that gave us such a warm welcome at Drag Week 2012. We flew in from Holland on the Saturday before Drag Week to tag along all week in a rented black Impala. We had the time of our life and our slogan for the week was "Never going home again".

    We will definitely be over again next year and some time in the future I hope to be able to compete. Not sure on how to go about it yet though. I had plans to one day ship my twin turbo '69 Dart over, but after talking to Whacky (from England) and John Faraone (from Australia) it seems quite expensive and a lot of hassle in paperwork (insurance etc). I may look into buying a car in the US and storing it somewhere like the other Aussies do.

    I put some pics and video's up on Facebook, but I don't know if you can see them. I'll post the links but if you can't see and would really like to, just add me.

                    On another note, that Dart is one hell of a sleeper!

                            You've got that right Eddie. I can't stay away. I love it over there.

                            Thanks for the compliment! I built this car to be as much of a sleeper as possible. Sleepers are the baddest and don't attract as much attention either

                            When I take this car to shows, people are always like wtf?

                            See you in a few weeks.
