Two good looking +2's at Maldon Car Show

PostPost by: tcsoar » Tue Jul 03, 2018 7:17 am

Spotted these two fine looking cars last weekend, had a good chat with the owner of the blue car and I must say that the body work and paint were fantastic and it was done around 1995 and still looks gorgeous.

Hi Leslie,

It was the owner of the blue car, Alan or Friedy on here, that had the good bodywork and paint job.

Alan, I remember you telling me it was painted prior to you buying the car, was there any paperwork with the car to suggest who did the paint?

Hi Leslie,
No sorry no idea of who painted it. I only have a book of photos of the rebuild.

Thanks both for coming back. Her indoors and I both enjoy visiting Maldon. A lovely old town with walks along the river but have never been to the car show. Didn't even know they held one. Maybe next year.
