Mollie at CamperJam 2014

This weekend we traveled down with the Harrogate & District VW Club to Weston Park in Shropshire for CamperJam 2014. It was a long drive with the Bob, Mollie and PeggySue, but we had fun on the way and once you arrive its all good. It pretty much rained all Friday night but the rest […]

Mollie at Mighty Dub Fest 2014

Mighty Dub Fest is a family friendly show in Northumberland. Mollie was entered into the Show and Shine but the show field was so muddy that we took the decision to leave her where she was at the camping area. I’m sure she would have won a prize though, but we’ll have to wait until […]

So the Rancho Freeway Flyer gearbox arrived yesterday and it’s getting ready to be fitted. It’s always good to get photos of parts that will never be seen again, especially when they cost as much as this gearbox did, so enjoy! This should be the last piece of the jigsaw in Mollie’s restoration. Next stop […]
