If you could have taken home any car from EBI 5....

Post by e m p i » Tue Jul 02, 2013 6:19 pm

....which one would it have been. Post amended to say *RACE CARS ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE CHOICE*
For me it would have been the slammed satin black low light ghia that was cruising around OR the red notch that belongs to Andy Finch aka Spike the Paint and was in his marquee. It is quite simply stunning.
Mrs Empi was drooling over the Ghia that (once again) was in Spikes marquee and said that was the one she'd have taken home.
Obviously all of those came slightly after my bus :lol:

Shalom, Lee.

I was lucky enough to spend Weds night with Spike,Rusty Lee and others and then cruise all the way to Ebi with them....man that was a cool convoy to be in. Then we cruised to Brugge Sunday evening....through the cobbled streets with everyone at the outside cafes and bars cheering and waving. Something else :D
Such a cool weekend 8)
That man Spike knows how to lay down a coat of paint :wink: :D 8)
Packed a few belongings and headed out to Pirates Cove. In my buddy’s old grey Kombi we rolled until the gas got low.....

That's a tough one as there were so many awesomely cool rides there.
Shiney wise it was hard to ignor the Ghia in Spikes marquee but for me it was the gnarly split panel van with the amber headlights.

Ah, funny you say that scoops because when Mrs empi and I discussed this race cars were not included and I must have forgotten to put that in the post. Now amended so chose again.
For info, if race cars were included I would also have picked lightening bug as well without a second thought. But they're not.....
