A fixer upper

Its heartening to find fellow hoarders. Those of us who keep things long past their useful life on the just in case or too good to throw away as it might come in useful principle will understand this picture. Its owner wheeled (carried?) it into a barn a while ago and while it may not have the original paintwork (painted Hammerite red a long time ago) the original engine (or even the right make of engine) and the numberplate and paperwork have long since vanished into the inasafeplacesphere, this is a thing of beauty and well worth keeping hold of as one day it will be restored or someone will make an offer on it that just cant be refused. Meantime the pigeons use it as target practice. Some are really quite good shots!
