British Autojumble: Pink castle treasure hunt

This year the British autojumble was located on the premises of a former theme park, so the usual interesting collection of British cars was parked in the woods around a slightly shabby looking pink castle.

Hot hauling day

A nice day to move  the Wolseley engineblock. The Jeep Cj enjoyed towing the toytrailer.

Wolseley visitor

Visitors are encouraged to show their old cars. Especially when they are as nice this strictly one owner Wolseley 16/60.

Mini van A panel positioning

There was some nasty rust in the double skinned A panel on our little Mini van.
After removal of the outer panel we could see the full extent of the damage. Both panels were replaced by new ones with some difficulty as the fit and shape was rather poor compared to the panels we used several years ago to repair the A panel on the other side of the car. The rear part of the front wing had rusted too, so that was patched and the flange reconstructed.

 After painting new hinges were fitted as well.

A small hole turned into several slightly bigger repairs.

After some final fitting, paint and a thorough service, the van passed the safety test and was back on the road.

Jumping Jimny shocks

Even a "modern" needs new shocks once in a while. Almost old school technology underneath makes it somewhat acceptable here. I'm sure it likes the green lanes and speed bumps better now.

Wolseley day trip

A sunny afternoon drive to see a little 1940 Chevy truck. The Chevy was not to our taste though. The drive was nice. We even pulled up behind a pretty Borgward Isabella on the ferry home.
