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.
