  8. philmayfield if I remember right the wandering blob was the one Dennis used for trials Georges is the red 1947 one with the steel framed body that the racing lot wont allow ,although its about the only one left with the original rivetted up chassis, what an experience to drive these 3 wheeler they are epic
  9. Ive nearly finished my P4 that I bought on a whim in a million bits ,I never liked the P4 much and wanted a P5 3 litre but as I have got on with this project I have realised what a fantastic quality car the P4 is ,how the hell did the British motor industry lose its way so badly in the 70s?
  10. ayup commo ,e93a morgan three wheelers whizz along nicely, my mate george owns one that he raced for years, he didn,t need good lights as the white frightened face of his passenger lit the road up for a hundred yards round it,it used to be owned by Dennis Rogers from Lowater St!

  15. the Manor car park used to be the plot of a pair of semi detached houses that they demolished to site the car park. Grange farms drive was next door to the manor car park and the bungalow on the drive was occupied by Mr Skinners daughter and son in law ,mr Skinner the owner lived in a flat upstairs in the old farmhouse ,the car park for the restaurant was where grange farm close is now. My dad used to do lots of maintenance work there, and was pally with Mr Skinner he died of cancer sadly ,and the place was never the same again As an aside the Manor was the Cosy Cafe in the 50s and 60s and changed to The Manor hotel it was run by a chap called Allan and his Wife, I forget their surname. They sold the Manor when they retired and it was bought by the Tom Cobbley chain and made into a pub. Manor garage almost opposite was owned by Stan Burnett who was a pal of mine he used to race cooper 500 cc racing cars and was also a formula 1 mechanic for Reg Parnall Stan was also an accomplished private pilot ,but nearly hit a bus once when taking off from horse field next door ,he forgot the wet grass would slow him down a bit, happy days

  17. seen the vet today ,she said knock them off for three months to see if the pain etc alters,my cholesterol is ok at the moment although in 2007 I lost loads of weight on the Atkins diet andmy cholesterol went up to seven something I always blamed this for the heart attack I had a few years later.
  18. off to the vets tomorrow for my six monthly check up I will have to mention it all but I honestly never clicked it may be the statins that could be causing it, I know I have become much worse over the three years since I first started on them,thanks every body for the replies its helped a lot
