    - 9th Custodian of JRR 929D, Triumph Vitesse based special Paul Moorehouse built prior to the Triumph Roadster kits.
    - 8th owner of Roadster chassis number 2395. Now owned by Barry!
    - Builder of chassis number 2325 (PKK 989M) in the mid 80's. Now owned by Eric & Lynne.

    It would be good to get a proper look at the rear axle set up! No leaf springs, coil over shocks, sway bar and radius arms. Thats the sort of setup I have been thinking of for when I can eventually can get restarted on my marlin. I have been looking to do a version of the locost design, but it would be helpful to see this setup.

    Cheers Phil

    I've bought this, and first task was to join here

    The guy had two, so I've bought both, The V8 Turned up Monday and is now tucked up one end of the garage, a van load of boxes turned up yesterday, never seen so many spiders..... The second hopefully is being picked up tomorrow (hopefully)
    It looks like there is a lot of work to do on both of them.

    Welcome to the club. You will find a wealth of knowledge and experience on this forum if you need it during the re-build.

    Thanks for the welcome ggrum.
    I've started a thread in the new members area which shows the interesting condition the cars are in currently.
    Lets hope I can get at least one of them back on the road.
    Regards,
    Ian
