Thanks for letting us in...

Post by Russ1971scamp »

Hi All
Myself and Sami looking forward to meeting up with you all in the near future.
It was great to meet and chat with a few of you sunday at the Nec Classic car show....
Recently we have got ourselves a Mopar.... 71 Plymouth Scamp 318 - this a california car that we believe entered the uk in 2015, we bought it off Drag Racer Ian Turburville and what a cool guy he is......
A little about us, my first v8 car was when i was 18 i had an Aussie Ch Valiant with a 360.... a lot of car at 18 but all them years ago and that was many years ago insurance was easy etc etc, while that was being ripped about and modded i ran a daily driver 77 camaro six cyinder...also a work friend at the time had a 79 403 trans am followed a 70 351 cleveland mustang ( that was quick).....we was a regulars at Lakeside Cruise essex and chelsea. Hopefully there are a few southern members who remeber the Lakeside cruise.......A house came along and i had to grow up just a little, so cars went to the background and sold off... Then i met Sami and she loved the idea of American cars and we bought a 71 shark nose camaro and regulary visited Guildford cruise and the Pod, we was also blessed with North Weald Drag strip only 40 mins away...our boys came along, money ran out and the Camaro got parked up in a garage.... we still have the camaro but taking it off the road was a major bad decision --- its now in need of major resto....bugger.. well jump forward 20 odd years after parking up the camaro .... and the hunger for v8 was to much... now we love going to shows and the pod every year but theres nothing like being back on the road in a v8...(plus i might now get motivated to restore the chevy) you may of noticed i love all american marques..Brandon our eldest is driving and a car nut...his super low wide arch mx5 grabs attention..... Now i am a fossil when it comes to social media but i do have an instagram account @russ1971camaro should you like to a small glimpse into our lives.... for now i am enjoying where i started back in the seat of a Mopar... oh i will eventaully update my instagram name to respect the Scamp... Russ & Sami

Welcome! I remember the Lakeside Cruise from the late 80's, still got some photos Printed not digital) of Mopars from then, way before I actually owned one.

Pics of the CH would be good, I have an Aussie Charger as well as the Challenger.
Scamp should be lots of fun.
