Hello from Northants

Post by MickB » Sat Mar 03, 2018 4:47 pm

Have been using the forum for a while so thought i would introduce myself and my lovely Lightweight that i have had for about a year now, it had spent all of its service life in NI.
This is a pic of when i had just collected it, been doing a few jobs on it but as we know with these things one job leads to another then another, hard top as gone now, just going to paint it and tidy it up for now.

And very nice it is too. What a stable-mate - the Escort looks great - as does the Volvo 240? on the other side.

Cheers guys

It probably had a bit of a hard life in service but some one has spent a lot of time and probably money on it at some point, just needs a few of them repairs redoing and a good clean up
