Dare we say: the Leith police dismisseth us?

Only the fogies will know where that originated!

The plot thickens...

Yesterday I found out from a local member that his wife had traced an Instagram chappie who had taken several pics of T529, and from there had sent a message to someone she suspected might be the owner - she's now received a reply from aforesaid apparent owner suggesting that "he was selling but everything has a price" shocked


And today - cleaning up outside after last evening's meet trip (it would rain after a sunny morning rolleyes )
a traffic warden pootled up the street on a scooter and stopped opposite me, dismounted (oh gawd I thought what's he after) and came over.....
"Do you know the Shore?" he says (area of Edinburgh around Leith and the coast)
Yes, I think I know what you're going to say..
"A blue one of these, been sitting there for ages, flat front tyre..."
Yup, and back, I say...


I cannot believe this guy (he lives down that way) took the trouble!

And now, well over two years later, the owner has turned up!

Met him at BVAC Thirlestane Classic Car Show Sunday 2nd June. I almost fainted....but not before I pressed an FCCUK calling card into his hand laugh

He seems to have an issue with the sprinty's alternator so the intention is to point him in the direction of an alternator specialist when he contacts us...
