    Lil Red Coupe
    from England

    Hi there and hello from Norfolk England. After much badgering from Paul (wensumvalleyrods) the old man, I've joined the HAMB. He said that I should get on here and talk to the ladies of the HAMB and everyone else, so here I am.
    As I'm supposed to say a bit about myself I should start by saying that yes, I'm into cars but life before that was all about classic Brit Bikes of which I still have three, two Triumphs and a BSA. When I met Paul about 20 years ago he had some old heaps he used to drive around which I didnt like much but took an old Vauxhall PA cresta off him to hack around in - very reluctantly finding myself liking the old crate. He had the Dodge custom royal then too which I couldnt keep with on a 500 Truimph so told him I didnt like that much either ( to his face anyway, loved it really, I'd never let him sell it without giving me first refusal) Our love of American cars over the years has led us to collect several specimens but one car I always wanted was the Ford V8 Pilot and so managed to aquire one about 10 years ago and drove every where until Paul dropped a roofing sheet on it two years ago and dinged it one. Lucky it wasnt him fell on it, could have dented it more - oh sorry he could have been very hurt......:)

    In 2008 7 of us using 5 cars set off for East Germany (Pauls 40th Birthday treat) a 2000 mile round trip over 2 weeks, I took my 1956 Chevy which performed great, never letting me down - a car Paul saved from the crusher about 5 years ago.
    Last September Paul sold his T and bought me a 1937 Dodge coupe and had it shipped from New York and its sitting on our drive waiting for the better weather, they use salt over here on the roads for grip, dont know what you guys use but its lethal to our cars over here so I've just got to be patient. Keep looking at it though makes me sick, hey ho be patient Bev.
    Thats me, great to be here. Beverly xx

    Montana USA welcomes you too. No salt on the roads here, but the sand they use is coarse enough that there aren't many windshields/windscreens that aren't broken or chipped by the time summer arrives.

    Nice lineup of cars past and present!
  20. Welcome from the far north!! Don't listen to that "Rottenpop" geezer, he'll lead you astray!!
    Lovely cars !! Charlie!!

    Hi Mark, yes we do drive tractors here, Pauls Dad has got a lovely old 1951 Ferguson which he drives home some days for oiling and repair, along with bringing his horses to the house, he stands outside the house with a horse in the road washing it with a hose pipe in the summer, its a sight to see. Our fine city of Norwich is one of the biggest shopping areas in England, the 5th largest I think? so seeing these old cars and tractors about the place is shocking to some. In the summer when I trip off out to Asda in the Chev or Pilot, its hard to be able to leave the car and actually get into the shop for people stopping me and asking all the stock questions......'is that your hubbys car?, did your husband do a lot of work to it for you?' that sort of annoying thing. If I'm not too irritated by this time, sometimes I drop in the fact that I teach moto mechanics where I work and usually they shut up then. LOL
