Terry Watson - 540
Based in Northampton - email@example.com - 01604410407 - Beck (Chamonix)
Navigator and picnic provider: Margaret Watson
Car: Factory built Beck (Chamonix) Speedster 356 EPB
Fix the oil leak on the crank nose, there since the car was built, Sand seal pulley should sort this (Thanks Len)
Remove the nasty non period side indicators, just doing this and fitting Pegasus stickers over the marks until respray in done, when the car will probably turned into a 'Carrera'. (Winter 2011/12?), when added power will be sought, along with a camber compensator to allow more spirited use without the concern of swing axle rear wheel tuck under.
Porsche badges, now the car in not used for sales demonstrations etc.
Makes me smile every time I drive it.
As you will have seen, we have clocked over 9,000 miles in the three season we have owned the car, including trips to Cornwall and France and display at the Goodwood Fesival of Speed and Silverstone Classic.
Other than the oil leak and a faulty coil this has been uneventful fun, especially chasing Len round Castle Combe last summer!
We also belong to the Kettering Area Motor Club, which caters
for all interesting classics, kits and replicas and offers
added events on the Summer weekends when 'Speedsters' have nothing
on or it is too long a drive for one day out.
(Summer evening meets at The Lilacs, Isham, near Kettering,
contact me for details)
