I see your car(s) list is already updated. Now that is not allowed until the car is actually in your drive at home!
You may have parted with the Filthy Lucre but your counting chickens before they hatch and if they jump the gun then you end up with egg on your face and a hole in your pocket..

We need to be there when it arrives in the drive cause someone has to record the new owner showing off his pride and joy.(oops i do mean the car!!)

Score! Florians are all the rage all of the sudden...no Bellett collection seems complete without one.

I still wonder what happened to the maroon one I 'missed' at auction a few years back...damn auction houses, dodgy as they come.

Have fun with the new rig!

Hey Mr. Flibbbbbllleees !!

Not having got on bellett.net for some time, this is exiting news ! It wasn't only 6 months ago you were pining for a vintage Isuzu of any sort. Now it's all happening. It will be great to see a few Flories on cruises.

Congrats,

B.

thanks guys, the clean up has started! broke a battery terminal trying to remove the battery, but i think that is a minor problem! going to try to crank it up on the easter weekend and have it running and clean, then i will look into putting it on historic rego. got to try and find the correct size spare tyre as the one in it is too big and has to lie down in the boot, not to sure about finding a 6.15 14 tyre though!

also has an isuzu tool kit in the boot a red roll with some wooden handled screwdrivers etc not sure if it is origional or not but they look good!

WHAT......A.....FIND! :o
Looks so good! Will be fun giving it the good clean.
And with the toolkit! Rare! Are the hubbies there somewhere?
Choice mate. Good work on grabbing it (And convincing Mrs. Flibbles 8-) - It must be those cushy seats!)
:) :D :lol: (You, a.t.m.)
Matt.
