Just picked up the quality picture (eventually followed your thread Al) What a very chuffed Gent you must be with that absolutely personal art creation-well done-well received and of course sincere congrats to the artist.

Regards

Just picked up an original enamel sign that advertises De Reszke 'Aristocrat' cigarettes. I'll only be showing this side in the garage:

I checked on-line and the only one I can find the same colour is over 3 times the price I paid. :D

Hi All. Been a while since I've posted anything important, lots going on here so not much time to be very active on the forum.

Today I took Matilda for her MOT. Glad to say she passed with flying colours! :lol:

Matilda MMO MOT.jpg

As you can see I go to a 'Old School' MOT centre.

On the way home I stopped to get my own version of an image I've seen before, couldn't resist it... ;)

Matilda MMO.jpg


Whilst I was taking this one a big 4x4 stopped and asked if she was for sale. I said no and said a crazy price well over what I had paid wouldn't get me to part with her. It didn't deter him and he told me to call him if I ever changed my mind...

Had a great weekend away at the MMO 4th Annual Gathering at Pateley Bridge. Had an issue on the M11 on the way up when it became apparent the radiator cap wasn't up to the job. Lost most of my water but MickEssex noticed and we sorted it all out. The cap was bought last year at the Scottish national but I still had the old one in the boot.

During the trip out to Kettlewell a front indicator fell off as we headed down the hill into Pateley Bridge. A replacement has been sourced and should arrive soon.

On the way home Matilda sounded and felt as if she was only running on 3 cylinders. A quick check from my back up team aka MickEssex a faulty spark plug was found. We were on the road again in no time.

Other than that Matilda did me proud. Here are some images of her during the weekend.
