Hi all,
Fellow club member Nick & I rescued this one on Saturday. It had stood for 23 years in a council lock up. We've not had a chance to check it over that much, but it has had poor welding job on sills & it is very scabby underneath, but we're going to try and save it. Interior is good & it is too good to break; so watch this space.

On a sad note; we learnt of an auto in a garage in Stourbridge; coincidentally, only a few miles away from where this one was. Council garages were due to be demolished & owner could not be traced. I found a record of it from 20-odd years ago that it had been a members car (one of 4 he owned). Cutting to the chase: the council said it had to be crushed as it was contaminated by the asbestos roof of the garage! Perfectly good Fastback has now gone. I tried negotiating with the council, but they were having none of it. Really annoys you this bureaucracy - & Health & Safety gone too far.

Anyway; thought I'd share this with you forum chaps.
Cheers. G.

That is so sad. Council top staff have never worked in the real world and love inventing more rules that make jobs expensive and we pay extra on our council tax. In the revolution.............
