Brooklands Double Twelve

PostPost by: NedK » Mon Jun 20, 2016 7:07 am

It was very good to see two beautiful +2's - one early Burnt Sand, the other a 130/5 in immaculate white - at Brooklands this weekend.

Sorry I didn't catch your names, but it was good to compare notes and provide a bit of inspiration to my 1969 +2S restoration.

Yes, I saw those, both very nice, the white one was particularly stunning I thought.

Hi
Just seen the article of the event and think you are passing comments to my white Plus 2 which is just back on the road after an 8 year restoration.

Very much appreciate the comments

Steve

That looks lovely Steve. Did you go through Guildford at the weekend? I saw a very nice white +2 going towards Jacobs Well but unfortunately I wasn't in mine :-(

Steve, I owned RHT900M from 1981/2 through about 1991. I have some history that you may be interested in... :D

Lovely to hear that she is back on the road again, I do not feel as guilty now...

Thanks for all the complimentary comments it been labour of love getting it to this condition but i dont need to tell you all of that as all are fully aware of the effort required.

Rich almost certainly my car as was on route to a long weekend away with my wife who initially was always concerned about the reliability but afterwards with a faultless trip she is converted and now planning another few days away in the car.
Phil if you have any history on the car i would be really pleased to hear from you i acquired the car in 1995 from the previous owner who livid in Addlestone, not sure where you live but would be nice to meet up id possible.

Cheers

Steve

Hoping to be at Brands next Saturday family commitments permitting
