    was gettin' lonely

    on the old forum - thanks Doug.

    My "proper" name is Ian. Started tinkering with scooters in the late 60's - first car was (don't laugh) a Reliant van - matt black bonnet & fat wheels - next up 105E - flared arches -1500GT lump - Mk1 'tina - MK2 'tina - V6 fat wheels etc.

    Thats where the tinkering stopped for a bit - I went into the motor trade & lost the ambition to work on my own car as I always had new cars to drive. Never stopped hankering for the sort of cars I saw at the Pod & other places though.

    Started restoring scooters again in '96 & enjoyed that a lot. In 2005 the dream of owning a rodded Ford Pop started to become a reality & if all goes to plan I hope to be driving it early next year.

    Well it didn't go to plan but hopefully later this year .....

    Now run my own workshop - we are Rod friendly for MOT's
