Have an uncle who lives in coventry too mate who didnt get rid of any of his cars for about twenty years and now has fenced off his back garden to hide all his old cars at the bottom of it. Now the wild cats have a mk3 cortina 2000e, a austin princess, a earlyish mini, mk1 fiesta and a sierra 2.3 diesel as there new homes. Course none of them can come out cos he has built a garage that blocks off the drive now.

My son has just stripped a 1950s daimler consort for racing. Think he has put most of the parts on ebay but if anybody needs any parts i can see if he still has them and also he had a few rover P6 parts.

Spotted a ropey looking Austin A40 in a driveway in Garlinge the other day,
Pretty sure it will never run again! Very Happy

Seriously though there is a car I regularly pass near Hartsdown. Think its a Ford Zodiac MKIV ? That clearly isnt going anywhere!

I did indeed. The A40 doesnt actually look bad at all , shouldnt be too much to sort that wing out.

Hmm it's a lot more of a job than you would think. Its solid! VERY Solid! So its either major reconstructive surgery on the wing or a new wing but they are hard to get hold of. As I said its on the list!
