    Hey Phil.  Just wondering do you have some relaties in Atlanta?   There is a Mayfield milk co. there.  They provide a lot of dairy products, milk, cream, ice cream to the stores in North Ga.

    No Loppy. My only relatives living abroad are in Perth WA.

Looking at the original logbook it had been owned by just about every member of the RAF! I resprayed in Rolls Royce metallic blue, my first and only attempt at a respray. It was rather good though!

  4. My first car was a 1947 MG TC. You could recline the seats but they were held in place by two large wing nuts which you had to loosen by hitting with a mallet. Imagine my girlfriend's horror when I appeared with a large lump hammer to put the seats into a reclining position!
