Tim Hatcher's GT NHK 10P - MOTd after many years

I bought the car back in Spring 2011 as a buy one get one free, with a GT I kept until this year, PCA 460P. I realised that this was more likely to be seen as a spares car rather than a restoration so hit upon the idea of cash back - half the purchase price would be returned when the car turned up at it's first JOC meeting. The car was advertised at the Bristol Classic Car show where PCA 460P was on the club stand, Tim contacted me having owned Healeys and GTs in the past and wanting to restore another one, having retired from the Navy.

This is the car as I bought it.

Good on Zac for having the idea, and for forfeiting money, to try and save another GT - and of course congratulations to Tim for his thorough restoration. Looks a lovely GT and one to be proud of.
