If you were wondering – yes that was an authorized blogcrash by Blogjack Masterjohn – AKA – BJMJ(4 star) – known by the tax man as Mr John Glynn.
Hopefully we dont tax John too much by posting scraps of rubbish from remote areas of the 14,500km Peking to Paris route that offer some kind of data connection – yet leave all the comprehensible clean up to John.
MrÂ Glynn made the mistake of declaring his hope to be rewarded with a hat like mine. Well to up the stakes and keep BJMJ focussed – I am putting that hat up as bounty for the job well done. Assuming that vintage hat can be carried from Peking to Paris, it will be one of a kind.
The 1993 GIO Classic Rally wasÂ an event in Western AustrliaÂ that I entered with my brother Brett in a great little BMW 2002. We prepared the BMW at Windrush in Australia, the first full car build by Windrush. That hat has survived ever since and although slightly moth eaten and grubby – is a prize from another era of classic car events. The car has survived remarkably well after a couple of owners too and is still competitive in Australia.
Fittingly the BMW wasÂ wearing Campy’s, not as wide as the 12″ fatty that BJMJ is sporting below, but none the less, rare magnesium wheels that me and my wheel freak buddies lust after (Harold – you’re blushing)
This hat will be packed in the 356 like a coin on an Apollo mission – let’s see if it’s next adventure is a massive one.
