Redeemed By Love
A good friend of ours called by today. O/H has been having a bit of a time of it health-wise and our friend brought us two complementary tickets for the Onslow Park Vintage Rally on August Bank Holiday Weekend. I think as well, that he brought his pride and joy to show us. It's taken him three years of solid hard work to restore it from 'hedgerow condition' to this. A 1963 Morris Mini. I love the Mini.Used to have one in the 1970's. It's surprising how much room is inside. I once bought an armchair from a furniture auction and after a lot of fiddling and jiggling managed to load it up in the back of my Mini and cart it home in style.
He has tried to keep all the original fittings.
The engine is immaculate and he's even got the original tool set that came with it.
I love old things that are restored. The story of my life really, I suppose.
