Back From The Drags 2009





It was cool to see loads of the guys I have only ever emailed and to check out their rides. It was also cool to see some awesome cars, in weather that was totally unexpected for this time of the year...Simo, Scarlett, Guy, The Dirty Bobbers guys, The Britstockers Boys, Benny, Neil, Spindle, Billy, Nathan, Baz and loads more. If I have forgotten you... sorry!
