Welcome to Galpot Weekly #07/13 a review of blogs posted at "Gettin' a li'l psycho on tyres" during week 7 11th February to 18th February. Dodge Ram 1500 Extended Cab, Avenue Drivers Club, Queen Square, Bristol The week started with a look at this 1995 Dodge Ram 1500 Extended Cab with the 'Big Rig Look' credited to Philip E Payne that took Dodge to the top of the US pickup sales league from 1996 to 1999. MG Midget 1500, Essex Tuesday's post featured an MG Midget 1500 that Trevor Kirk ended up restoring twice in twenty years, second time round it was voted best car in the International Midget 50 celebration at Burghley House in 2011. La  Bestioni V, Grand National Roadster Show, Fairplex, Panoma, CA A couple of weeks ago GALPOT ran a feature on Johnny Martinez '29 Ford Pickup, Johnny's adventures in the Grand National Roadster Show at Panoma with his neighbour Gary L Wales, who's 1919 American La France based La Bestioni V is seen above, were the subject of Wednesday's blog. Buick Special Convertible, Shakespeare County Raceway This Red Hot 1958 Buick Special Convertible featured on the Valentines Day Blog. Ferrari 250 GT SWB, Classic Motor Show, NEC, Birmingham In 2008 US $ 4,000,000,000 would have bought you this 1963 steel shelled Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta that featured on Friday. 04 12 05 17 #12 EUGP 83sc Unsurprisingly after the death of founder Colin Chapman Team Lotus struggled in 1983, but hiring Frenchman Gerard Ducarouge midway through the season resulted in a dramatic upswing in the teams fortunes thanks to the Lotus Renault 94T which was designed and built in 42 days. Berkeley SE328, Carmel By The Sea, Concours On The Avenue The Berkeley SE338 Deluxe featured on Sunday was powered by an 18 hp twin carburetor Excelsior motor cycle which gave the cute li'l critter a top speed of 70 mph and a 50 mpg fuel consumption.
