Uk Rodding History photos from Kevin Elson
Great site.....brought lots of good memories flooding back! When I was a teenager and just getting into the rodding and custom scene I used to go to the Cardiff Cruise......it only lasted for one summer if I remember right! Star of every Saturday night was Paul Kemptons Pop Coupe......he lived in the next street over from me in a flat above a garage where he parked the Pop....i used to be in bed late at night and hear him coming home in it, he also had a customised Bedford CF van which i used to drool over too!!
Paul Kempton now owns a pine furniture warehouse in Cardiff and the last time i saw him he was driving a Porsche......possibly a 928?
Looking at your site has got me thinking about all of the old car photos from the late 70's early 80's that i have in the back room......must dig them out and have a look!!!!
By the way i drive a mk1 Capri fitted with a mildly tuned Rover V8, 5 speed 'box, lowered/uprated, full cage......currently off the road as i have been doing sensible things like getting married, buying a house and starting up my own business.....i have recently started work on it again though!!!!
Keep up the good work and keep adding those old pics......love them!!!
