As said no problem and welcome to the group :D Finding stuff is just by keeping my eyes open when out-nipping down the odd dead end can be usefull for finds :wink: and the odd tip off from people.

That big old two-tone Humber with the "OAF" reg plate, wasn't it one of a bunch of them that appeared in readers' restos in Practical some years ago?

ISTR that some guys were buying Super Snipes and restoring all of the cars in the same colour scheme, then using them for wedding hire.
Please, someone tell me I didn't dream that.

The Yellow (but used to be blue) Cortina is indeed on eBay at the mo, according to the description, it was

converted by a professional.....

Hmm......

Not a dream! It definitely happened, and that was my exact same thought when I saw the pics of the Humber too. They were all that colour scheme, so i'd be willing to put money on the fact that it's one of his.

Don't suppose you got any more shots of that Samba did you? Only I've got the hots for one recently.
WARCRAFT. The only dealer network that GUARANTEES their cars WILL get you laid, and that's a PROMISE!

Whats the car thats just in shot on the far left of the picture with the white Cortina on the blue Princess, its the blue one just the passenger wing and light in shot, I did think it was a Mazda 818 at first but dont think it is now, more like a Datsun, any pics of that or the two tone green Cortina Carousel they look good in that colour.
