Post pictures and stories about your cars both present and past. Also post up "blogs" on your restoration projects - the more pictures the better! Note: blog-type threads often get few replies, but are often read by many members, and provide interest and motivation to other enthusiasts so don't be disappointed if you don't get many replies.

If only he stuck to designing tents
Landrovers and Welding go together like Bread and Butter. And in the wet they are about as structurally sound

Biting. It's like kissing except there's a winner

My mate Colin Ginn has big premises in Clacton which he has
just rented out as all he wants to do now is welding/panel work
which he doesn't need big premises for and now works from home.
He is well known in the Cortina world and has plenty of work.
I try not to take on to many restorations as there very time consuming.
This one is mine and I work on it inbetween other jobs.
I still take on big jobs but not ones that will take months and months of work
Cheers Paul

It's as though you'd popped back to the sixties in a time machine and given Ford a lesson in how to build cars, 'cos sure as eggs is eggs; they didn't do the job as well as this. Your outstanding build moves the goalposts and sets a new standard that others will struggle to match.. Again!

John, If it's old & badly broken, chances are I've owned it. :|
