Homepage. This page: Progress on my old-car restoration projects, and other stuff.

Working on old cars, visiting shows, interesting finds and more.

My latest plan, which could change at any moment, is to update the classic car forum on a regular basis with progress, ramblings, and general musings about old cars and restoration work I get done to my own automotive relics. As and when other flashes of inspiration come to mind, I'll add them to the blog also.

Previously I posted news about my own rusty cars in monthly updates, which will remain (below), but from now on, please visit my classic car forum for further updates.
