My stewardship of Astral Traveller is almost over as it gets picked up in a few weeks. It was residing in my back garage surrounded by c**p and kids toys, so it took a fair effort to move it. I had to move Mabel out the way first then swap them over.

Some pics for posterity:

As far North as you can get - Thurso. New owner is a friend and a long time admirer of AT, so it will be in good hands.

Hi there,

This will seem a bit out there but my dad is George Watt, the original builder of the astral traveller. He sold it before moving to Jordan a few decades ago. It's great to see it still resides in Scotland. He still lives near Kinross.

If someone was able to put me in touch with the new owner or even send some more pictures/info that would be amazing. I'd love for him to see the car again! He used to show me it in his old magazines, and still has the trophies it won at car shows.

Cheers, Finlay

:D Welcome to the forum Finlay. Great to hear your family is part of the history of Plastic Orange's 'Astral Traveller'. (Perhaps you could share a photo of it when in your Dad's possession?)

Well, change of plans, Astral Traveller will be going to my brother as I need space and the original prospective purchaser's work commitments precluded him picking it up. My brother is totally fed up with Harley Davidsons and is selling his bikes, so needs a new direction. Whether he'll get a ploughing attachment for Astral Traveller or not is another matter :D
It will probably be going to Ross Morrison to get readied for the road, and it looks like it will be powered by a Lexus V8. I don't think it will be staying red either, so will have a new look.

Sorry to hear he is fed up.
I suppose a lot of heart went into what he has done and if there is not the give back it can be disheartening.

Look forward to seeing things eventually happen, it has waited this long a while longer wont matter and as to changing it isn't that what it was all about originally :)

I really can't see my brother doing this now as his plans for a makeover haven't materialised (long story), so it may arrive back with me, or just stay in his garage for now. I had someone asking about it through a third party, but have had no contact as yet.
Would be a good candidate for a 4 x 4 chassis swap :D

Astral Traveller will be on the move further north soon as my brother can't get round to it due to another Harley build :roll:
The new owner is the person who couldn't collect last year, but can now, so it will be getting returned to it's former glory and with a Jag V12 as the car was meant to get back in 1974.
