Old Speed With A Twist

Vintage Speed VWs are, by their very nature, nothing new.  The whole idea behind them is to build cars inspired by those that were raced in the 1950s and ‘60s in road races and timed events across Europe, in an era when fuel injection, turbochargers and electronic ignition were either just twinklings in the eyes of enlightened designers or the preserve of high-end grand prix cars and aeroplanes.  Race cars back then were simpler affairs, pretty much standard production cars with basic tuning tweaks made to the engines, a little more in the way of safety features and a little less in the way of weight.

The Legacy Festival. Do something good!

Inspiration can come from many different places and in some cases can be born out of the most tragic circumstances. When we came across Lyndsey, and the story of her son Lloyd, we were saddened to the core but equally inspired by Lyndsey’s drive to turn such a heavy loss into a positive. The Legacy Festival is all about remembering but mostly about families and friends coming together, listening to some great music, eating some amazing food and most importantly having fun. Please consider reading this blog, book your tickets for the festival and help to make positive changes. Thanks go to Lyndsey, her family and everyone supporting The Legacy Festival for sharing your story.
