Hello, just a quick introduction.
My name is Guy Etchells and I have two classics a BMW 325IX (that's the 4 wheel drive saloon made for about one year) and a 1955 Hillman Californian.

Cheers
Guy

Hello and thanks for the welcomes.
I have not done anything to the Hillman yet, it was my brother's until he died last year and I inherited it.
During the ten years he owned it it only really required the usual servicing and running replacements.
It was garaged most of the time only coming out during the summer months but he did a few long trips in it.
Scotland to Leicestershire, Scotland to Cheshire etc.
Cheers
Guy

Hello again to the forum.

Pressure of work has kept me away form the forum, though I have viewed threads occassionally without logging in.

At last I have time to go back up to Scotland where the Califorian is garaged and should have time to give it some attention.

Cheers
Guy
