@mixed fleet latest drive has arrived....
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 ?.
HThe same design was used into the 1950,s because after the war there was no money for re tooling. 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.
Latest edition, no towbar this time either....
A convertible would be grand for the Carlow barley barons when going to Kelly's....
They are building a Bypass around Enniscorthy to smooth our passage . It is going to land us into Oylgate doing 120Km which should add to the penalty points score . As regards the convertible I would not like to arrive in Kellys with a motorbike hairstyle .
That time of the month
