Wallace and I had stopped off at the Spread Eagle (such an evocative name.....) in Midhurst W.Sussex
Clever of you to put it together. :D
My first drive since the new engine went in.
V smooth and v speedy. Just needs a tweaks and then she's ready to go.
Can't wait!

I thought Wallace was meant to "put it together".

Welcome back to Jensen driving, Barrie!

Nor am I, but that plate must be worth more than the truck to a Harley owner...

I reckon that's a Goggomobil, a T-250.

Sorry James, have not seen your reply.

Goggos were very common here in the 50s, some are still around and being driven by proud owners.

I was given one for a tour. You feel horrible when you suddenly have one of these huge SUVs behind you. :shock: You only see their wheels. Gigantic. Monsters.
