Dragged from its slumbers...

Today ginga's Variant, a.k.a. Eddie Valiant, basked in the glow of daylight (well, as much daylight as snow clouds will let through) for the first time in twenty years. It was parked up in early 1993 when the tax disc ran out and has been waiting patiently all this time. The garage door has been up barely 10 times in that period. How it looked in 2009.

After a two vans full of junk carefully accumulated top quality replacement parts were removed the poor old dear was dragged out backwards until the brakes freed off, then the tyres were inflated and it was loaded onto Ross's LT.

Genuine early 90s stickers and grafitti including a list of shows attended in 1992 including Spring Championships (RIP), Detling (RIP), Stanford Hall, VolksFest, Stonor Park, Bug Jam 6 and a bunch of others too faded to read.
On the road, sort of.

It's now waiting, again, in a barn with ginga's Fugitive and Howard's Beetle. Well, you can't rush these things!

To have Ross move your car, for a very reasonable fee, call RJH Automotive on 07967201677
