Back in the world again

I'm back. My confidence to fart has returned and my nervousness and spare pants in my bag have been banished!
India was good, hard work but fun at the same time - some great people, some good work challenges and the potential to make a mark - I think I'm going to enjoy it.
I've come back to lots of jobs that have stacked up including sorting out a drive in the Norwich Union Classic a week on Sunday. It's now in the hands of this specialist

Yes Dave Pearson and I are at it again, although I hope he won't stick his tongue in my ear again. We've got a special car to drive, well we hope we do as it's not finished yet! I can't say too much at the moment but if we can get the thing finished in time it will be a special day indeed for both of us.

The other news is that following a board meeting of the Canley Classics "What can we do next that no one else has done?" committee (OK it's me and Dave and some beer) Team Atlas has been born - yes we will do the RBRR 2008 in a Standard Atlas camper van! These ugly, underpowered, ungainly, nasty things are as rare as a lean running PI car! For those who've never seen one, look away now and preserve your innocence. Here's the beast of Canley



It's not in the best of order and hasn't got an original engine thankfully - they were only 948cc! So that makes it OK to get ot back on the road in useable guise with something better under the floor - a 2500 six cylinder with an auto box perhaps?

Dave's got another Atlas in far better and much more original condition that will be restored to original so this one can be more practical - if ever an Atlas could be such a thing!?!
