Time to spring clean the wallet again. Parts gathering and engine now in and sort of running.

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to work out what it'll be.

Or even where!  There's no guarantee that Sheffield is the destination, for all we know it could be that there London, or Swansea!  Ah, wait a moment... what about Chester?  Has Billy got anything on offer at the moment?

After a light lunch we went and picked up the dusty van and I followed Jon back to base.

Then after more blethering I was off to the garage to relieve the fuel light of its duties.

On the way home many many miles passed and then I saw a nice airport runway so popped in for a drag race.

 

Wow 80

I have also had to make some space for the next toy incoming so this has went out on permanent loan so to speak, at least I won't have to mot it now anyway.

During delivery of above motor I drooled over this wall art, shame the owner needs it as it's all still conected in working order.

Even though my offer was only accepted today.

I've many happy memories pottering around the fields with a topper on the Nuffield version of this (384?). My scariest moment was going up a steep hill with a big fertiliser spreader on the back. The front wheels started to lift of the ground and it started to drift to the left. It snapped round in a full 180 and I trundled back down the hill with my heart in my mouth. Made sure to spread a little more before attempting the hill again.

 

Well bought!
