    I am sure it is doing a splendid job, and feeding that beast petrol becomes a tax deductible expense too.
    All the best.

    a "thing" of beauty. All of the best in your new venture. You'll have to learn about Hi-Q and tyres... oh, wait...

    It will be in Courtenay Street, part of the Shell garage, across from the Kentucky.

    Volg net die stof kolom. Dit is waar ons bou en breek.

    Mooi, of hoe sÍ `n mens nou baie mooi. Plain Afrikaans F-kk-n mooi.

    The Glady has now covered over 15 000km trouble free and is still going like a rocket.
    Was great seeing it in George today.

    I watched in tears as it drove away yesterday morning. It found a new home. A good home I must mention.....standing next to a Willys 2A and a 57 Overland bakkie.

    A very rewarding chapter of my life, now closed.

    I will miss seeing it standing at Hi-Q

    That’s the 2nd time I let this opportunity fall out of my hands, first time when she was standing destitute gathering leaves & muck in uncle Mickeys yard for what seemed like 100years, and now when I read the for sale ad and heard she is gone.. different times and economies might have led to different results but no point crying now..

    Must have been terribly hard to let her go irrespective if finances were worth it, thank you none the less for a great build thread, I am sure I speak as a collective when I say it was an awesome thread and project, hopefully you will delight us with your talent in the years to come..����
