All Cars In Use

MOE is about to be a part of my daughters wedding this Saturday, the ex white estate of mine is to take me and the blushing bride, and MOE gets to take the bridesmaid and the brides mother. It's nice for fellow Club Triumph members to help out, our meetings, (now twice a month for the summer) are becoming real family affairs, we are getting about 8 ladies amongst the 40 or so regular attendees.

The Courier passed the MOT yesterday, I think it will need a clutch soon, it is getting ready for lots of new chrome recently acquired.

Tuesday (name for the Mk2) is being taxed tomorrow and I am looking forward to driving her for the first time on the roads.

I have just insured with Peter James instead of another well known classic insurer, mainly due to price, they quoted £181 for the two cars, where Peter James quoted £131 for three with a total agreed value in excess of £12K always willing to save money, this price even includes breakdown and recovery!

It will be a couple of weeks bfore I can get ready to sell her because of the daughters getting married, and I have other duties. So if anyone is interested you can get back to me at:
