    The mpg's aren't to bad in fairness for that old lady. I'd say there's a fair few bob gone into the restoration of it. I wonder how many 191's will be around in 84 years time :unsure:?.

I had a picture up of a eroded head for one .Howard’s in Glasnevin re skimmed a spare head and helicoiled the water pump treads . They would not weld the old head .
    The seats came out of a 1938 Mercedes. It was restored in the 1970,s and was driving until a few years ago.

    I see Jimmy Foyle getting a mention there, I would have wandered through there in the late 70's so probably before the car in question came into his ownership, he had a grand location slightly elevated on the corner of 2 streets, you would always be driving slowly if heading south as there was a sharp bend coming up so hard not to notice his place.
