Didn't see this thread Embarassed

I shall give you pics of the fleet to look at!




The Carawagon as it was....
It is currently being rebuilt but I haven't got too far yet. A new chassis has all been painted up and a rebuilt rear axle sits underneath, with the front soon to follow. The rest of it is in boxes all round the place!!

Slightly out of date pic of how it currently stands (the whole chassis is black now)


The daily driver over winter and when I am at uni. '72 Series III on a galvy chassis with a 200tdi under the bonnet, standard axles and transmission with the exception of high ratio diffs. A VERY useful vehicle indeed!

And finally, the modern car!

Evening all, was introduced to this forum by Richard H. I'm Daniel (as you can guess Laughing ), 19 years old and have been a big fan of old cars for most of my life, mainly from the late 40's to early 80's. Currently part owner with my Dad on three classics- a 1957 Wolseley 1500, 1964 Austin Cambridge and 1978 Vanden Plas 1500 (Allegro shape Razz ). However the 1500 and Allegro may be going this year and I'm going to try and find a tatty but solid 60's or 70's car for everyday use, currently thinking along the lines of a Triumph 1300 FWD/Toledo/Dolomite. Cool I also collect a varied selection of automobilia, mainly brochures and magazines, badges and diecast models.

Hello all, i'm Barrie a newby on here having had the forum recommended to me via the Hilux Pick up Owners Club forum.

Our family own a 1914 Cheswold car built in Doncaster, S/Yorks. I understand it is one of only about a hundred cars built by E.W Jackson at their factory. It was originally bought new by my wifes great, great grandad and then bought back in the 1980's by her father. It was last driven in the mid eighties and for now is in the care of Doncaster museum.

We do have a file of information on the car but i am keen to expand this and gather together as much documentation, pictures and history of the car as i can. I'm looking forward to reading about other vintrage cars and how hopefully gather hints and advice on collating the above info.

Hi,

I'm Ed based in Gloucester for the time being. Between me and my other half we have a varied collection of toys:

Davrian Mk6 Modsports - being restored
Clan Crusader ex-works rally car (now a sprinter) awaiting restoration
1983 110 Landrover - general work horse & tow vehicle
1960 Series 2 SWB Landrover - at the bottom of the restoration list! My first car. Smile
1961 Series 2 LWB Landrover - massive project still being stripped.
1969 Hillman Imp - project in progress
1969 Hillman Husky - even further down the list than my landrover! Sad
Most of the bits to build a couple of BSA Bantams
1910ish Brown Brothers Vindec tradesmans bicycle
Couple of 3.5" and 5" steam loco projects
Lots of O gauge clockwork loco stuff
Teles Dragsaw
Sissons stationary steam engine (ex-university test engine)
Coventry Climax prototype half engine (V bomber start supply)

I think that's all of them at the moment! Laughing Now after something a bit bigger - Unipower, Latil or Foden timber tractor if anyone knows of one for sale! Also need some more storage space! Laughing

And another one! Hello all, I'm Bruce from down in Southeast England and I've recently taken on the restoration of this 1934 Austin 10 2-seat tourer:

It's been sitting in that barn for quite a while but isn't exactly a proper 'barn find' as we knew it was there. The idea is to get it driveable rather than concourse, hopefully my limited experiece will be enough (it's not as bad as it looks - famous last words?!). Will post some more detailed pics etc. in a more appropriate thread when I get a few minutes.

Welcome along Doz, I look forward to reading more about the 10/4, both myself and Pigtin have similarly-aged chrome-rad 10s, and I'm sure there are one or two more out there amongst the members.
