GALPOT Weekly #59

Welcome to GALPOT Weekly #59 a review of the last seven posts at "Gettin' a li'l psycho on tyres". Volvo 740 GL Pick Up, Bristol Classic Car Show, Shepton Mallet The week started with a look at a 1989 Volvo 740 GL that has been converted into a pick up with the intention of carrying a Royal Enfield Motor Cycle to show's and rallies. MG ZS, Goodwood Revival The second of three Hot Rovers in the form of a 139 mph 2001 MG ZS was featured on Tuesday. Volkswagen Type 181, Summer Classics, Easter Compton On Wednesday I looked at the Volkswagen Type 181 utility vehicle curiously marketed in the USA only as "Thing". Dodge Challenger SRT 8, Shakespeare County Raceway My irregular Perfect Car For A Wedding feature returned on Thursday with this 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT/8, of the retro muscle cars currently on offer without a doubt my favorite. Ferrari 250 MM, Goodwood Festival of Speed "No Hay Dos" provided the introduction into the ins and outs of the Mexican language and domestic product market on Friday as I explored the meaning of the unusual strap line painted on this Ferrari 250MM. Talbot Sunbeam Lotus, Race Retro, Stoneleigh Yesterdays featured Talbot Sunbeam Lotus shares it's Lotus Type 81 number with the 1980 Team Lotus Formula One car, but it was much more successful winning the 1981 World Rally Manufacturers Championship. Rolls Royce Ghost V12, Piston Heads, BMW Group Plant, Cowley Today's featured Rolls Royce Ghost V12 is described in Rolls own words as “more realistic, more measured”.
