In the latest YT upload, we have a movearound of a heavy lump of automobilia in the garage. We head out in the Standard looking to buy a few bits for the Pilot, then take the latter to a local morning meet-up.

Glad it was of interest Peter.

Latest is a look at 300+ vehicles at last weekend's NEC show, with an emphasis on the older vehicles in attendance.

Evening all, the opportunity came along recently to visit an incredible collection of post-war Alvis restoration projects, parts cars, and mountains of new & used parts, stored in various barns. A vid describing my morning out is below.

Another fantastic video Rick. Your enthusiasm comes over just right. I am sure I would be so overwhelmed by the sight of all those Alvis projects I would be tongue tied...

I bet there were some discussions back at home about a once in a lifetime opportunity. I also liked the green TD21 and can imagine there could be a tidy car under all that bird poo. Shocked

Thanks Ray, I only had time for a quick look but yes the green one would be the first I'd look closely at if looking to buy. Even if I didn't buy it, I'd still enjoy getting it outside and washing it all down to reveal what lay beneath. The extent of ash framing though would make me unusually cautious in buying a TD21 though.

Some really nice photos Rick. First classic car I bought was my 1937 Ford 7W, bought it when I was 17, still have it tucked away at the back of our shed 30 years later....still not restored though.

First car I ever steered was a Ford Y, I was sat on my uncle's lap going round part of Greenham Common sometime in the latter half of the '40s, probably '47 or '48. when I would have been 5 or 6.

Having been stung with the MG (also Ash body construction) I would take a more cautious approach. I would deduct the cost of a complete frame replacement from the finished market value of the car and offer the seller the resulting figure ...and no more. ! Take it or leave it.

In my opinion if these cars had ever been financially viable projects they would probably have been restored by now. I suspect the cost of even a basic restoration would not be viable.

I often hear it said that restoration should be seen as a labour of love; it's not about the money.

Having been down that road, I am not so sure.
