Brian Marshall of Wheelbase Models very kindly invited Phil an I to attend the show with just one claws, to help him out on his stall. That's fine by me. Here I am with Brian looking on hopeful customers to buy his wares. Phil also lent a hand looking after Johns (chap in the white shirt in the back ground.) stall.
Phil used to have a Mk 1 Escort, not a Mexico like this one but a two door 1300 Daytona yellow. one of his biggest regrets is selling it. If you know where PJG585M is please Email me, Phil would love to buy it back.

Here with Duncan Pittaway the owner of the car. Duncan is holding a Hotwheels model of the car that I found for sale on Johns stall. I took the model too Duncan to see if he new there was model done of his car. He did an was given one for his last birthday.

How's this for a hot rod? So low, that if the suspension gave out an inch you wouldn't need a heated seat, cuz your bum would be dragging on the floor.
