King Tut

King of the Interceptors?

This is Sheila Jenkins' Interceptor III, King Tut.

Many people will recognise the car having been owned by Martin Ritchie previously.

The car was bought by Sheila's husband Fred who sadly passed away. Sheila is enjoying driving the car and has become active in the club taking on the role as Regalia Secretary.

Looking good. I love the WTF expression on Steve Paynes face on the last photo.

I regretted selling King TUT as as soon as I had sold it!
I was so pleased it went to such wonderful people and both Fred and now Sheila have looked after the car well and have continued to iron out any niggles, including recently, replacing the steering rack.
It's a real surprise and pleasure seeing the car as "Car of the Month"!
