Re: transitional minor

I have one of these too.. as I am a bit weird, having a car that's a bit weird suits me :P

1964 registered, with claper hands wipers, old style heater, door lock barrels from pre62, stearing wheel with the wire in the middle and a pull starter

I call him my "factory made bodge job" :D :lol:
