Kev does like chocolate. Too much for his own good.

That's what kicked off the "How many fingers" challenge

12 hp engine..and it turns !!!!


The plan now was to settle in to a winter restoration at its new home and as this is a Morgan Forum may not be of interest to Talk Morgan members....but...there was one unopened large box remaining!!!!


One box remaining to go through and investigate,,,

One box which will interest any owners of classic vehicles what ever marque they may be,,

One box that would subsequently lead to a very unexpected turn of events..

I wonder if the timing of Kev's posts is a function of when his medication wears off?

Morning...

In a previous episode...

There is one large box remaining..a box that contains the heart and soul of the 1954 Slough built Citroen 2CV...

Its the proof ,if proof be needed,that one of the reasons that a classic car of any marque is much more than the sum of all the parts...the history of the car and any information on previous owners is like gold.

This box was full of history...of somebodys pride and joy:

Among the many documents...the original Registration Document:

The original workshop manual was included:
