Let's catch up

Had a cracking Roadtrip earlier this month visiting the Med at Nice, storming up the Stelvio pass and return to good old Blighty. The pictures above show UNJ at Dover, in Louhans central France and outside a stop south of Grenoble in the French Alps.

I suppose like any 32 year old car has a right to it had a few problems, notably the viscous coupling failing and the rear lights going AWOL but all in all UNJ did a great job - fast, comfortable and stood up to a damned good thrashing over 5 days and 3000 miles.

It has taken me some time to get back to the cars though as I felt enough was enough for a while.

UNJ will need an electric fan kit and some diagnostic work but it's off the road now until next spring so no hurry.

I did return to PMW the 2000 today first of all just to have a look and see where I had got to!
Once there though I realised I have made good progress and maybe it won't be too long before I can have the car back on the road.

So, gently gently I restarted work. The carbs are back on now with all the linkages back together and the accelerator and choke cables reconnected. Also the fuel pump back on the engine.

Here's a couple of photos to prove PMW still exists!

I may well take PMW to the Alps in 2014 - about 3 years after it's last trip out!
