Posted: Thu Jul 10, 2008 9:29 am Post subject: Hi Guys
Have recently retired and moved to West Yorkshire.
Like many folk I smile at the thought that cars we drove are now considered classics. We loved 'em when they were just cars.
I've had Minors, 2cv's a Honda S800, Hillman Hunters and Minx's, Mini's ( My BMC workshop manual ends on Ebay today........... http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260258412683&_trksid=p3907.m32&_trkparms=tab%3DSelling ) even a Throbbin' Robin.
My as yet unrequited love was a Vitesse/Herald, never took the plunge.......sigh.
Have rooted you guys out as my desires have turned back to bloodied knuckles and rusty bits in me eye.
Speak to you soon.
Hi Rick, I would no longer fit in a "real" mini and I need to use the car as my only transport. It started with desiring a convertible; To be honest I've never lived anywhere before where a rag top wouldn't be vandalised.
That's how my thought processes started. 30 years ago as soon as I got divorced I bought a Midget and a big bike. I'm back happily married and hoping to keep the wife and the car
I've looked recently at all sorts of dropheads and my rust compass keeps pointing towards a Triumph, although, once I've bimbled through this forum me needle might swing in another direction.
I don't have any great affinity towards any company which I see as the beauty of the search.
