Fingers crossed Gary will have the Formosa finished by then and as I only live a few miles from Castle Combe I would love to take it to the event

Mick ( or anyone else familiar with the meeting ) , Graham , my customer we are building the Formosa 120 GR for is quite keen to get the car to this one ....I'm trying to make that possible but obviously the unknowns in a build are , well unknown!! ...so , if its looking like it might not happen for some reason ...is it the sort of venue that we could transport the car to , unload and put in the Classic parking area without too much aggro ?
Loads of room to trailer in and unload - park the tow car behind Quarry if necessary.

I can't see any reason why not. The gate people are all from one of these private armies and are only concerned with taking your money whilst trying to look 'ard.

Thumbs up A352 Project For Sale

Not sure where to post this, as I don't think it's worth its own thread, but an A352 Project has appeared on Ebay.

I'd snap it up myself if I didn't have two other projects to complete first.

Regards, Mick

More importantly, what is that lurking by the big packing crate ?

As Dan says in the ad- "a good head start towards building your 1950s sports car."

No, that's a hard top. One in the photo is a soft top and has distinctive looking rear lights, looks if it might be getting "The Hump".

I saw that project when visiting the tribute / old no.7 chaps (and very cool they were too)

The gel coat colour was quite a light purple. Loved it. Too difficult to build with my (lack of) skills so will concentrate on my Kobra special.
