Re: What Daily Car/MPV?

VW Golg estate cars are pretty good if you can find one, likewise Octavias, but they can be pricey for what they are.

Re: Powderham Castle 11/12 July 2015

The one at Powderham said it was an Allardette. Whether it was or not is another thing.

Re: Powderham Castle 11/12 July 2015

Hello all,

The Alvis belongs to the chap who does electric steering conversions, it's a fibreglass body of his own design on a TA chassis. The fastback Anglebox is an Allardette "Breadvan". What Sidney Allard did next.

It was good to see everyone, maybe TSM will be there next year.

Re: Alternative front indicators?
