Announcement : Best laid plans and all that. I am now keeping the flag flying on my own again. So, from now on contact me direct on my email. I am weighing up what products will be replaced as they are sold off. There is a “dropping off of the twig” of many of the folk who were interested in the cars I support and so a dwindling call for parts.  So it could well be when it’s gone-it’s gone.
