Tails from G's Garage.

It's been a while since i've posted here...The curse of Facebook i'm afraid.....
Maybe it's me but some people are hard work....Anyway i thought i would recap on what's been happening (or not in some cases)with my fleet.
As we speak...Ash is getting her turn in the garage....she has been off the road for about 2 years and suffered with a smokey engine for 6.
I did treat her to new boots for her 10th anniversery though.

Pat on the other hand has had plenty of attention of late.A fresh interior...seats,headlining and door cards....and the supercharged engine(now with bluetooth dizzy)

Poor Ruth was carted away to the secret long term storage facility(aka my mum's house)

So at the moment i'm working on a replacement axle with rear disk brakes and coil over dampers for the traveller along with a new steering wheel for her as well

I hope all you guys get time to enjoy yourselves this year....in the garage or on the road...i know i hope to..

Me me G, don't know how you find the time for all. Take my hat off to you, but suppose that's why one going into LT storage, so you can concentrate on other two.
I'm going the opposite way, Mabel up for sale and moving to the dark side (American car ownership) which hopefully will be a totally different experience to what I've had these last few years with a modified Morris.

Jim, I can assure you, the experience with a yank will be very similar to Minor motoring, just that you get more admiring glances from folk that don't know any better as you drive past lol.
Graeme, yes, the facebook MMO page is hard work, that's why I'm not there.

Defiantly looks like you have converted it to natural gas with that on top! :lol:

So want to see Ash at Pateley again.
