    Shad news I decided to risk depending on it for a work trip so wafted to my destination and back And en route back i couldnt resist taking a pic beside a brutalist posh bastard house of the period… When i got back I see that the RREC have been busy and sent me the records the hold for it, and they have landed through my letterbox. Join me later when i browse through whilst with guinness.

    Great back story- so you grew up around them? Ive tapped up the RREC and asked for the records they have, so im looking forward to finding out more (soon hopefully!)

    Meanwhile on the ropey ‘shad front, we all know its received a generic, demeaning and tacky; but at the same time quite glamorous and accessible wedding white blow over…… but in what? As a comparison of factory whites in the works car park…. My money is on the old ford diamond white (bottom of pic) and the mini looks a bit too cream? Or what about white van man white? after all, when it started getting the bride to the church on time, it became a trades vehicle as well…

    Could be my imagination but this is getting better with use, the brake pedal feels more positive and its starting instantly. The handbrake has stopped working but the mechanism is free and in good order, but the forward cable to the pull has snapped- so an easy fix.

    Nice! the e bay add sounded like it was a bit of a local landmark where it used to be. Just how i remember them.

    OTT but I feel this car is half way between life and death. It was almost banger raced, its got a non original interior and paint and no history, and the parts fetch a fair bit - im just giving it a bit of a send off most probably. But is it giving me a send off? untimately we are all condemned to the scrap pile. #seize the day

    Out in the rolls getting a curry. Oh how the mighty have fallen. Next up a mc drive thru? Ive ordered all the data for the car that the RREC holds. Invoice, warranty card, build sheet, road test report and a heritage cert. Not cheap, but im hoping for a celebrity first owner, or some obscure shell organisation although most likely a northern “business man” of some sort.

    Works car park By coincidence i bumped into the partner of the editor of Classic Retro Modern this morning so showed her what i turned up in. A faded stately home on wheels basically.

    @LightBulbFun thanks, thats some great extra info! I may try a v888 but in the why i need the info box unsure if theres a level beyond which access is granted?

    HMC- p38 progress

    Agreed! im aiming to remove those at some stage, as im too boring to warrant the need for them, most of the time anyway 😂

    This shad appears to have originally been a dark gold colour , and as it fell from grace it inevitably ended up white. It has no history, so im going to make a project of trying to trace it. Alas i presume a v888 isnt a viable option @LightBulbFun - not unless i claim its part of operation yewtree!

    Interesting, i had no idea what it was!

    I also found some treasure under a seat in the shad, which contains some health advice from the government…..
