Well done Trevor - where did you get that?

It was an August 65 built car from Birmingham last I knew.

Hi Keith it belonged to Terry Batchelor, he bought it in 1974 and it was last taxed in 78 so he's had it tucked away for a long time

Oh yes, that's the one Bruce mentioned. Looks nice car to get finished.

You are not set up as a member so we'll get that fixed as long as you're paid up.

Hi Trevor, do you still own DOV? I was given a photo of it by the guy who sold it to Terry. It was really mint when Terry bought it. The previous owner is/was an LCR member and has been restoring a 64 car for many years. I must say though, that I haven’t spoken to him for many years now, so hope he’s still ok and has maybe finished BNK. If your out there Eric, get in contact, it’ll be good to catch up!
