As Suffolk make all the other parts, owners of original cars come to them for parts as they are 100% authentic in fit and finish.

That really is quite some chassis Reg! A copy of the original or improved?
I love those maroon wire wheels...going to look stunning with the paintwork. What colour interior? Maroon leather?

Yup, there's no point spoiling the ship for a ha'porth of tar. It's going to be gorgeous, so you may as well make it as gorgeous as you can!

I was looking at the Suffolk website yesterday, they truly are lovely cars, aren't they?

It's no good, I shall have to crack on and win the £1m Premium Bond prize this month. smile
