Rian and Nicola (alias Grizz and Myrtle) are pleased to announce the arrival of their latest baby!
Myrtle is a gorgeous bouncing 1956 100E.
We are very excited and hope to welcome her home over this weekend!. - Reported by Nicola on : www.medwaymonkeys.co.uk
Well, I guess virtual cigars and beers allround are on me then ??
Nicola has a Car she wanted a while now.
Yep, must have looked at up to 10 cars, none in the flesh, realised these are rising in price, and found one for possibly more than hotrod money, but made the call, as they seem to sell as fast as they come to market. Had a friend, Phil (2002Gimp) go around yesterday and today to poke about, smell, taste, hear the car in the flesh.
Made the decision to buy based on condition.
Paid the man. Collection Saturday 7am.
Dave (Oldbus) is coming over from Osnabruck in Germany on Friday night, hope to offload the car he is fetching by 12.30am, then sleep to 4.00am, up and on the road, load by 7.30am, back here by 11.30 - 12.00 midday at the latest, and Oldbus back at Dover by 13.00 for his Ferry back, then up to Osnabruck by late dinner time.
Owned, garaged all its life etc, current owner since 2000.
Not perfect, but pretty decent .
Done about 39000miles.
Hope to have her out at Classic Ford at Santa Pod next weekend.
There's a three bar grille one in a back garden not far from me. Its been there for as long as I can remember, filled with rubbish and a tarp thrown over about 10 years go. Doubt its good for anything now...
Follow your dreams or you might as well be a vegetable.

Sorry for not responding to yout texts/phonecalls - been a bit manic!
SO glad you managed to find a good one - I had a quick nosey at the one in Bristol while the owner was out on Saturday....not as good as it sounded and certainly not as nice as the one you've bought. With that in mind, I reckon you got a good deal. You might not think it was cheap, but what cost would it be to get a cheaper one up to the standard of Myrtle?? That makes it cheap in my book.
I can only begin to imagine how excited Nicola is? (and you for that matter! ;D)
Sounds like you & Dave have another exciting weekend planned. RR spirit is very much alive and kicking.
I'm currently having an early morning virtual cigar for you....I'll break out the champagne a bit later to celebrate.
Nice work and I look forward to seeing some 'roadtrip' shots and the winning shot if Nicola with the keys/behind the wheel.
