Welcome to my collection of mainly automotive content, specifically my 1930 Ford Coupe Hotrod construction, Isuzu Bellett, Nissan GTiR, 200SX and SSS,  various fast cars, Amateur radio, electronics and other activities.

I have always played with, and been interested in cars, since I taught myself to drive in a Fiat 501 as a young teenager. I love to modify and build things and these pages reflect  my hands on approach to most things, where I try to do as much as I can myself.
