There have been whispered rumours that Danny Boy would be getting Daphne back on the road again this year. Firstly it was for Sandown Park, then Bug Jam, but these deadlines came and went with no sign. The engine's at GAC, the gearbox is at a Porsche cog botherer and the car is spread around Turbonutta Industry's new HQ.
Could it be true? Could Daphne soon be finished?
Of course not. And to make sure, Dannny has bought a new project! After months of
idly scanning through the internet at work searching he managed to snatch this off Ebay in a midnight raid.
"Quick, take it away before he changes his mind..."
It arrived at the Birkshop on Wednesday evening and is a (badly) painted 1965 rolling shell imported from California. Aside from a few kipper filled dents the metal is all good, all it needs is the rest of it! There's no interior, no fixtures or fittings and only half an engine.
But it's a Split. And it could keep Daphne off the road for years!
The Lo 'E' Nuf restoration team are straight on the case
Meanwhile, Marco has been following the L'E'N way. After deciding his Split was coming together a bit too quickly he bought a Bay window to slow things down a bit. This wasn't working so he now also has...
It'll be lined, carpetted, stereo'd and a bed fitted and should keep the Split and the Bay off the road for a while.
