Friday 18th July 2008

I can't believe that it's been a fortnight since the last update!
We attended Hollowell steam show one weekend and then Birdingbury the next and the time in between has flown by.
We have tried to grab a few moments to strip out and refurbish on of the 'pre-registered' Gentry's we have in storage, but every time I try to make some progress someone calls and orders something!! Well I suppose that is why we are here.

We have a very early Gentry that is going to need quite an amount of work, probably a new chassis etc etc and as Ellen has set her sights on a Black coloured car I thought that perhaps we should build a Gentry complete with Police bell, sign and radio!
Well after all Lancashire did use the TF as a police car in the 50's and with my previous career it would fit nicely together and so whenever we get a moment we will be building a 50's styled, black coloured police car.

We have already started looking out for the necessary 'extras' that will be required and once again will keep the Blog updated as to any progress we make. Obviously as this is more of a 'play' car for us we will only make progress as our other commitments allow, so don't expect any miracles.

Right off to do some more research now.
Thank you for your comments that still arrive on a regular basis, but can we have some more contribution to the Blog pages please?

See you in a fortnight

Work, Work and more Work

Hey, I'm not knocking it. I enjoy my new lifestyle and am very happy that work is coming in. I have also been working on a single seat frame so that those who don't want a bench seat have another option.

We also had a visit from the team at TotalKitCar magazine on Wednesday who just 'popped' their heads in to see what was happening!
After a few hours of boring them with my life till now and how we came to be in this position I think they had taken pity on Ellen and were going to look for a nice rehabilitation clinic for me. They went away smiling and said we would get a feature in their next mag, due out in August
(available at all Sainsburys as well as the normal retail outlets) but their other feature for 'The Lancet' will probably get them greater recognition!!!!

We are taking the weekend off, by going to Hollowell Steam show for 2 days and then it's back to the grind stone for me.
What's happened to all the 'additional' comments from you fellow Bloggers? Are any of you doing anything interesting that you want to tell us?

See you in a fortnight
