RIP, wild man….

While in the car today, they said it was Keith Moon’s bday, and that he would have been 72 years old (he only made it to 32, sadly, he passed in 1978).

null

While I don’t think he was the absolute greatest in rock (nor is Ginger Baker, although HE certainly thinks so) – he’s definitely one of the all time greats – not for many of the same reasons as most, though – he’s fairly unpredictable, and manic, and undisciplined to boot. But in the crazy world of The Who – he was a perfect fit.

RIP, Keith – somewhere I hope you are looking down from the biggest set of drums any cloud ever tried to hold aloft, and still driving everyone crazy along the way….

Wheeler Dealers – ’73 VW Thing

Tue ,21/08/2018

Thanks to mein vater for the tip on this one – what a great episode and sure wish that car had been mine (barring that it was a ’73 – I like ’74s a bit better due to the back scoop)…be warned – this link will likely open a number of popups on you, that you’ll have to minimize or close….

Poker Run!

Sun ,29/07/2018

So this has been a bit of a slow summer for TR8 driving, mainly because of tech issues not long after I got it out of storage (had a flat when I got it out – got that tire patched; then had an overheating problem that with some ancillary help and a couple repairs, i was actually able to fix myself) – and then we’ve gone out of town a bit recently too.

So…finally had an ‘event’ to use it in – a Poker Run with the local Tyee Triumph club. We met in Issaquah next to a pub and Top Pot Doughnuts, probably about 15 cars total? Couple photos of us waiting below, my TR8 is in the very back of the first one before the truck, a bit hard to see:

so we took off, I followed the couple in the white TR6 as I had no ‘navigator’ with me – great, country drive through back roads towards Black Diamond (with bakery stop), then a Cidery:

at this stop, I had a chance to admire some of the other cars in greater detail, including the beautiful black Spitfire in our group, and Tom Eller’s TR250:

but then, back on the road we went. We also stopped in Maple Valley in a retail parking lot as a ‘rest’ stop. As a Poker Run, each stop gave us a poker card to write down, then at the end, when we were back in Issaquah at the pub, we compared ‘hands’ and weirdly enough (with only a pair of Kings) – i won! So I got my choice of the 3 prizes, I picked the Triumph Parking sign:

What a fun event! Hopefully they will have something else similar before i have to put the Wedge back in storage likely in Mid-Oct, depending on the weather…..
