    I was at a ‘Vintage’ car rally at the weekend, ‘posing’ with the Marlin, (as you do) when an ex-MOC member came up to introduce himself.

    It seems he has a 1979 roadster which has been ‘on the blocks’ for 20-odd years and he is keen to get it back on the road. After this amount of time he doesn’t feel able to do the work himself and is not sure if the residual value would make it worthwhile spending much money on it?

    Does anyone know of a good enthusiast, workshop/garage in the Paignton, Tor Bay area, whom he could contact to get an idea of costs?

    Thanks for any feedback, Colin Barrett
    (PM, or MSG via Facebook, thanks)

    Could be worth checking with the local College. They might be willing to take it on as a student project for the mechanics for the cost of parts?

    Surely that’ll be a very early MK1?
    - 9th owner of T693 SSC a factory built Ford based V8 Sportster
    - 4th owner of Q309 RNV, an early Cabrio built by Bob Copping, owned Doug & Liz Billings for 16 years
    - 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.
