Here is an old snap of the Sprint in the 90s at Hatfield House, wherein the owner said he had never met anyone else who had owned  a Magenta one before then.

I'm salivating - To me a Dolomite, even though I've owned a couple, still has a certain mystique about them. Certainly a must-by once I find the correct one.

I just wrote a screed to follow up, and blow me it said access denied, maybe big brother picked up on my annoyance to Mr Brown, changing the free tax revolving bit, after it was agreed at the former DVLA @ Swansea, in one meeting, consultation with Mr Bob Oliver, the representative who agreed to see delegates from the clubs that petitioned them' Conservatives in house. Eventual result, or so we thought, was that we wouldnt have a stricture to have to tax all off road vehicles and an actual concession would be granted, between 1995-7 a consultation period just what was on offer was muted, then as from 1997, 1972 was the first date but then was supposed to revolve a year every anniversay date-as all Classic enthusiasts probably know.

I'll sell off our Gold reserved and butter up all our friendly bankers, changed( froze)it when he slithered in with good ol'our Tone-in tow and Cherry Bomb-shell-suit, <puts soap box away agin>behind.

Anyway I pointed out that the Dolly in Southend would not be exempt to the vendor, as he states 1973 built, he claimed it might qualify,so with presumably having to fork out what I pay anually for a 2 litre Ford(£220 last year) I put 2 bids in(you are solely responsible PP and are held  entirely responsible for any Triumphs) it hasnt met reserve-phew. Obviously a really good,un that is pucker will go for a lot, however I,m not one of the uptight brigade, that demand total originality-anyway how would you get your one home if you succeed in aquiring it?

If it's from Southend, and you win the auction, make sure you chisel the mud away first.

"Don't panic! I'm being held accountable for someone bidding on a Dolomite. Bring back public boiling... tickets available on 0832....." LOL.

Nice one. Clearly the medication is therapeutically inadequate. Enough to make one want to guzzle a 'Yard of English Breakfast'.  

Good luck, GBt.

Hope you haven't taken my previous comments too personally, I'm just a jocular sort of person.

Any'sway I'm signing off for a few days due to personal and business reasons.

Keep smiling, GBt.

Best wishes, pp

Yep I,ve just had a letter for an angiogram procedure date, about my 6th, next Friday and if the stents have failed like wat they did before(6 done on 2 seperate occassions in Papworth)maybe if they find that, with a bit of luck and a fair wind and do them in Basildon, then the amount of medications I hope may be revised,

anyway see you after GBt

This is my Sprint in Inca Yellow. Pride and joy.

My Dolomite 1850 taken in 1982 by the Thames, Hampton Court. And yes, that's me at the tender age of 19.

How old where you in this shot? Sorry can't see the 1850 Dolly etc,

Don't think you've quite mastered the Flickr uploads yet, keep practicing

That is a picture of our first family holiday. Incidentally, that's my cousin Peter.
