Right Up Our Strasse: MB 250c

After an over-long hibernation we’re back with regular (or at least semi-regular) posts. This recent auction on the always excellent bringatrailer.com caught our eye. Check it our here:¬†http://bringatrailer.com/listing/1970-mercedes-benz-250c/



Fiat 500 TwinAir

Birds of a Feather

Look what parked next to the BlackSteelies Alfa Giulia in the carpark. This little cutie is packing the fantastic TwinAir engine so it’s a hoot to drive and sounds like a thoroughbred – albeit a baby one.

Web Design Brisbane

Lots of people (two, actually one person twice – it was me!) have asked me who did we get to build the Black Steelies website. My first response is disappointment because we wanted the thrown-together look and we wouldn’t describe the site as ‘built’ at all. But, credit where credit is due, we should acknowledge the work of the peerless crew at BA Creative. Their Web Design Brisbane service is first rate and we got exactly what we wanted.

Good work team.

Chris Harris v Alfa Giulia Super

Alfa Giulia Super Chris Harris YouTubeAlfaGiuliaSuperYouTube

We like Chris Harris and we like Ford Falcons (see http://blacksteelies.com/2013/04/03/when-henry-went-rallying-falcon-sprint/) so we were happy to settle down and watch him roar around Spa in a lovely ’64 coupe (it’s not a ’63 Chris) on YouTube. Then came the bonus side-story of him pedalling a beautifully prepared Giulia Super and we were hooked.

Chris is famous for his fish-tailling antics in the world’s most glamourous machines. So imagine the joy in watching him achieve impossible angles in a cute little Alfa while scraping door handles with Lotus Cortinas and Mini Coopers – in fact don’t imagine, what it here: Retro Cool: Spa 6hrs in a Ford Falcon
