I have a couple of pictures that I can post, I would like to have a photo of them all in a line up at some point.

The Hillman looks good, ideal that she has been stored in the dry.

Agree it's nice to find them like that - is it the same colour as my convertible under that muck?

Nicely presented Quattro , my former background is with quattros by the way. I worked for David Sutton when he managed the UK Audi Motorsport team in the seventies/eighties along with various other teams and independents and then onto restoration/classic Motorsport with Audis. No longer have anything to with cars in the work environment but happy memories of times gone by and always good to see someone carrying on the tradition.

I don't suppose anyone would have a spare fuel tank for the Hillman that they would like to sell?

Well, the Hillman hasn't progressed much over the last few months. She's now at home on the drive and in my name which wasn't as hard as thought it was going to be.

I'm having trouble finding a new fuel tank for her so thought I would fit a small race type tank in the boot until one comes up, what's peoples thoughts on this? I just want to use her before the weather gets bad! Just sitting on the front bench seat brings back memories of granddad Smile
