Dennis as found on Widmere Farm, Marlow

this was taken on the day i found the "tin machine" on widmere farm near Marlow in Bucks where she had resided for 18 years as you can see she had been stood out in the open but cleaned up really well after much work with a steam cleaner!
after checking oil level and a service on the engine she was running perfectly and all systems seemed live within a few days she was on the lo-loader back to Abingdon and a thourough inspection and mechanical overhaul

Things are really progressing very well and will be attending shows at the back end of the year
I have posted the latest photos of her minus the shiney aluminium! but looking better
its a rolling restoration in order to keep the interest going and the budget in check i will admit it wont be mint but i dont want it to be remove the scars and bumps and make it as an ornament then you remove its history a fair weather toy destined for a mantle peice
