Jan 7: Still Lurking

My 'new' 1964 Volkswagen which hasn't turned a wheel since 21st Dec. The reason is the rear tyre hits the non-standard 'hide-away' exhaust system whenever the rear suspension starts to compress. The result? Impressive amounts of tyre smoke, and a damaged tyre! As soon as the Christmas break was over, I ordered a new exhaust, but after a trial fitting today, I'm still not happy with the clearance. So, another system is on it's way, this time a completely different design known as a 'quiet pack' that goes no where near the tyres! Not as neat nor as quiet as the hideaway system, but a few cheaper. Ah the joys of a modified vehicle. In the meantime, still lurking...

(Sorry, I know it's a similar shot to Linda's 1st Jan shot, but hey, it's my car!)

I wouldn't imagine the VW ever lurking but this is a shiny shot, wow, so nice!
The darn thing sparkles! VW's seem more the "rowdy" type to me. The type with
not much cash but a lot of MOXIE and BRAVADO, life of the party types
BUT ...lurking? hmmmm, interesting :-) CHEERS!

You can see that it wants to get out.

This reminds me of an unveiling of perhaps a new type of plane as its about to come out of its hangar for the first time. And I'm really glad you have opted for that style of number plate rather than the more common silver on black variety - I used to be a train/plane/bus spotter as a kid and even now my eyes go straight to this detail!
