Last June/July I started it, moved it out of the garage and let i...

It was slowly rotting, indeed the offside wing mirror slowly descended into the wing which was itself made mainly of the finest Isopon. I took the mirror off and f...

Tomorrow weather permitting it's off to put some fresh fuel in it and give it a little bit of exercise as it hasn't been driven since Septembe...
