Not for the faint hearted is the driving of classic cars m'thinks but there is one thing to be said about driving the Moggie home and that is "bloody hell that was one hundred percent fun". No it doesn't have brakes, steering, suspension, nor handling like a modern car, in fact I'm not sure it has any of these full bloody stop! Yes it has holes in the floor, funny bangs from god only knows where (one very, very loud one that keep cropping up to scare the proverbial crap out of me!) and a ton of things that need fixing, replacing and sorting. But one thing she does have that proves that I was right in buying her and that is character!This little wreck of a car is absolutely packed with the stuff, yes many would baulk at taking on such a project but for me the little Moggie is a dream come true...... my first classic car restoration.
|So the paint is crap and the panels don't fit.....|
|...... she has her own micro climate ........|
|.......she is basic and that is being very kind.......|
|......she is no sleek sportster....|
|...... but she is mine and she has come home.|
So there we have it, the Moggie has landed and I can now look forward to being covered in crap, lots of cuts and scuffs on my ...er.. delicate?... skin and a vocabulary that will turn a Irish dock worker scarlet with embarrassment! I am truly looking forward to this, and I hope that you will stick around for the journey.
Til the next time take care,
