New Year and New Departures.

The shipping agents turned up last week to collect a car destined for the USA.
The car will be loaded into a container for shipment over the Atlantic. Then onwards to Oregon.
It will be sharing garage space with other British cars including Ultima GT and roadster.

This build is a GRP body and panels except for the hand formed aluminium bonnet.
The engine is a Jaguar XK 3.4 with fast road type tuning.
A very free revving unit that suits sprint driving.

All tucked up safely into the wagon and off to be prepped and packed for shipping

Look what Santa brought

A nicely wrapped chassis fresh back from the two stage powder coating process.
First is the zinc primer followed by the authentic chassis blue.

Busy Shed.

A nice line up of ASM's in the store garage.

More Winter Testing.

ASM visit Reims.

I took the opportunity to drop by Reims and look at the old circuit and pits.

This was while breaking the journey back home from Nice having completed the Route Napoleon.

Vantage Magazine Test 
ASM at Goodwood.

We had the privilege to enjoy some Autumn sun at Goodwood Circuit along with some 
Octane Track Day folk.

It was an excellent opportunity for the owner of this Aston Martin engined ASM to get in some track time whilst we completed the photo shoot for Vantage Magazine's feature.

Winter Sun.

A little chilly to be road testing but clear dry air can be nicely refreshing

Seen here is an XK 4.2 injection car prior to delivery.
