Default Mart takes Old Rusty to Prescott. FULL VERSION.

The teaser video was well received. Thanks for the interest.
Full version now up:
Part 1: (Getting the car out and ready)
https://youtu.be/fzeUZODBX6w
Part 2: (Track action)
https://youtu.be/OauMqOHMjq8

You might find the steering and suspension action shots interesting.

It was a great time, hectic one minute and relaxing the next, in a beautiful setting.

Can't wait to do it again.

Mart.

That’s great footage Mart! But why are you babying old Rusty?

Seriously, I bet that was a blast!

It popped up on my YouTube before you posted it here, I enjoyed watching the suspension working, glad you had fun. I didn't realize you had that many hot rods in England.

Oh Ralph, I'm chuckling to myself imagining the Merc on those old radials blasting round those bends.

Thanks for the image.

Mart.

We actually have some winding dirt road in a scenic valley not far from me that I hope to tour with the Merc and get some video soon.
I've got a very slow and sedate "leaf tour" video through the hundred acre woods in the fall of 2017. Mostly drone video.

That stone monument was constructed in memory of the original homesteader (Great Uncle Ernest Nevard of Essex, U.K.) I don't have any good close up photos but this one gives you a bit of a look.
