How are you getting on with that Stage One of yours?


Not too well Geoff! I still have it plus all the enthusiasm!! However it's still in storage at a friends farm but here in my village. We are hoping to move house but it's such a slow progress, so frustrating! It has been going on for 6 months and I'm now totally fed up. Hopefully something will happen soon and we will move and it will be on my drive! THEN.. I can pester you with lots of questions!! Laughing

Small world init? Info nugget - Mike Hailwood was killed just up from Gorcott Hill


Yup, I remember I was 15 at the time. Was it not by Becketts farm?


He was coming onto the dual carriageway between Becketts and Ullenhall and got whacked by a lorry.

My introductory thread seems to have taken rather a morbid turn.

Sorry Geoff - not on purpose. Let's change the subject shall we?

Now, about that Titanic.....................

Just correcting what I said earlier in this thread about the original colour of my now green Stage One, having got accurate info from the DVLA. Left the factory in 1981 Mid Grey, resprayed silver by BMIHT when they got it in 1983, and then again by them in 1985, this time blue. Resprayed matt green for Studley Squadron ATC in 1990. So I'm now searching for old photos of my Stage One when it was just either grey, silver, blue or green! (Grey must be quite an unusual colour for a Station Wagon then - most Stage One SWs seem to have been in one of the new, brighter - garish? - colours introduced with the Stage 1, or limestone like my other one)
