That's cool, I sent him an e-mail today wondering if he had published yet, he was still waiting. Richard said we were all over the Internet, but, nothing I could find as I am not on twitter, face book, or anything else. Maybe someone who has seen the pictures could chime in.

If no one from the future comes back to stop you from doing it then how bad of a decision can it really be?

Very nicely written as well, caught a bit of the cars spirit.

"The car pulls, hard. Part of the charm of the 510 is that it's from an age where the mechanics of driving were still totally exposed. No faux plastic aggression, no thought of infotainment. Just the clank of oily metal meshing and thrashing, and the faint whiff of gasoline."

Oh yeah, I've been meaning to fix that, for 10 years or so. :lol:

I thought it was a really good article, that's so much guys for representing your 510 iron for this article.
A great way to celebrate 510 years of coming of age in a 510.

Too cool for sure!

Is there a way to print this off? I would like to put a "hard" copy into the Bert Vorgon archives. I tried to do it but it seemed to cut off some pages line of text.

I captured it to a pdf but can't attach it here. It's too big, at a massive 1.2 Meg....

If you want me to send you one, please send me an email to z240@shaw.ca

Thanks, I did figure it out, copied it, then shuffled stuff to fit my format, for printing on photo paper.

It is something I can put into the Bert Vorgon archives to go with the history of my car. Over this past year I have slowly been putting everything into binders, all the dash plaques, race results, my race licences, the works basically. In 2018 it will be 40 years since I built this car, just crazy when I look back at what it has done and survived. This coming winter I will organize it all into maybe two full binders of STUFF!

After this past summers drives, it still puts a BIG smile on my face, and, as today's cars dumb down the driving experience, it's pure visceral experience is what driving is about. The whole drive by wire thing is just bizarre, Mr. Electron really is not that fast.

Thanks again to all for helping out with this one. It got good audience response, and I rec'd some positive feedback from Pete Brock, who was happy to see people out there rockin' the Dime. Cheers again until the next show or cruise!
