Swap meet 09

August 7, 2009

I figured that I would expand on kytelers post and post up some of my favourite cars from the Palmerston North swapmeet 09

I was a huge fan of the rat Herbie, would be so awesome if it could be made road legal

Huge V12 Lincoln that had a carb smaller than most 70s cars


The KidVrod

Was trawling the net the other day and came accross this.

Quite possibly the coolest dad in the world, Kristian From finland built a scaled down Beetle for his son to compete in soapbox derbys etc. Im just amazed that he managed to keep all the proprtions right when hacking so much out of the car. Seeing as im not so good at typing I will let the pics do the talking.

Bertone cars

July 1, 2009

Was browsing wikipedia and figured I would do a post about some Bertone cars and concepts that i thought were choice.

First up is the Fiat Dino coupe which is beautiful


Hello all, my name is Alex but I’m better known on the internet as Durty.

I figured I would write a wee introduction about me and the cars i have owned.

I owned a 1984 Toyota Starlet, followed by a Civic, Sentra and a Cordia

Then one day kyteler posted a link on to a trademe auction for my first Volvo, a 1978 Volvo 264. I managed to buy it for $215 and never actually did anything with it due to it blowing a headgasket and some idiots biffing rocks through the windows

but now i was hooked, two 1982 244′s followed in quick succession
