North Coast 500

At Oily Rag Classics we don’t just restore Jensens but drive them too. Having just completed 1976 miles in our Interceptor starting from Cornwall and driving to Scotland to complete the NC500 driving on some amazing roads with stunning scenery this is a road trip everyone should put on their bucket list.

All went well with the car until leaving John O Groats when a rear brake calliper handbrake assembly broke, a quick temporary repair was made at the side of the road before being driven to a local garage where they let me have full use of their workshop to remove the calliper and carry out a proper repair that would allow us to complete the trip.

The summit of the Applecross Pass 2054 feet above sea level with the steepest ascent of any road in the UK.
