James Evangeli - Triumph Herald Estate
My first I bought when I was about 10 years old, it was a 1971 VW Beetle and from then on I just carried on buying cars and have a small collection now.

Triumph Herald Estate
I am 26, cars are basically my life. If I am not at working I am probably playing around with my car or buying more projects. I have been brought up with cars, my dad had loads of classics when I was growing up and he still does, from a very young age.
I was helping my dad work on them or going to car shows. From a young age I have been in the classic car scene and when I started to drive I got into the modified scene too.
My first I bought when I was about 10 years old, it was a 1971 VW Beetle and from then on I just carried on buying cars and have a small collection now. But the car I had always wanted was a Triumph Herald Estate. My dad had one when I was younger and I just loved them. I saw this one at a show and was trying to buy it for about 6 months and finally, I took ownership.
Car is a Triumph Herald Estate, I have always loved them, as my dad owned one when I was younger. I was just waiting for the right one to buy.
Spec, 1147cc when it was new, it was running a whole 48bhp, 0-60 was around 28 seconds
Spec, at the moment it just lowered and 5.5J Weller Classics steel wheel. with a carb upgrade of a Weber 32. The car has never been painted, but where the red had faded over the years we have put a gloss clear lacquer over it
I have in the process of buying all the parts ready to do an engine build on it. I am planning to replace the engine with a bigger Weber DCOE44 carb. Port the head and get a lightened flywheel and other bits.
So far I have done more of the bits myself and a little help from my dad and my mate Callum. It's all good buying a classic car, but you have to know what you're doing and where to look for parts as it's not always the easiest. Everything has been done by myself mainly.
I am a part of many many different clubs and groups. Ohsoretro, young retro motor club, Static take over, Royal Herts Static, and loads of others.
I go everywhere for meets, shows and events. I go to local meets and run my Royal Herts Static and Static takeover. I go to local classic and retro meets. I also went to Modified Nationals, roll hard, players and other classic cars show and end events. I go to these events and meet up with friends that I don't see all the time, and even though we all drive different cars, we all share the same passion. I do enter some competitions but really the cars are just for fun.
My favourite car, that is a hard question, there are so many cars I love for different reasons, but one car i would love is a BMW Z8.
