Practical Classics Restorer of the Year 2016

So, Libby was in Practical Classics in the September 2016 issue. Great article, brilliant photos. Front cover too!!

 As part of being in the magazine, I also got entered into the Restorer of the Year competition. All of the other cars in PC in the last 12 months were entered and a readers vote decided the final 10.
 I was so shocked to discover that I had made it to the final 10, and was invited to display at the Restoration Show at the NEC this weekend, where the winner would be decided by votes from the general public.

 It was a great weekend, lots of interest in the car. In the end, I came 4th. I am very happy with this, just getting to the final 10 was enough for me!!

To cap it all, I met Gordon Bruce, who was the tester and author of the original "Motor" Magazine article in November 1973 that started my obsession off. What a gent he was, lovely to meet and chat with him!
