Felicity Crouch

A lovely lady, warm, witty, kind, supplier of cake, and friend.
Our kids always enjoyed visitations from Mrs Pit Crew too.
She will be greatly missed by the Hughes clan, and Compies alike.

RIP Fliss xx

Corky's Scimitars & S2K

Corky's Scimitars & S2K

Personally I think CM are doing a great job considering the breadth of car vintages, design and technology. As I say, some of the Morgans and TVRs do OK, whilst others of similar ...
