it will be at least a few weeks before she is on the road, plus I need to get a full driving licence! so im not sure if ill be able to take her to any current gatherings

but I defo plan to take her to the hammond collection in the future :)

heres a couple pictures,

of note in the engine bay shot, with REV451R being a Mark B Model 70 she has extra chassis strengthening bars :) (and also a different type of bonnet stay, earlier Model 70's had a hoop style bonnet stay)

Hi Dez,  I am so pleased that you have been able to get your first car and hope that we shall see you and some of your AS friends at our Open Weekend (with or without a car). See the Hammond Colection FaceBook page for the most up to date information.  Jean
im very excited and happy to announce that after over a year of searching, hard work, saving up and a lot of research I finally found a Model 70 for myself :)

she is an Invacar Model 70, REV451R, she was one of only about 25 Invacar Model 70's that where sold new privately, rather then to the government (AC also made about 25 Private Model 70's as well)

and only 1 of about 5 Private Model 70's thought to still exist today!

she is in pretty good shape all things considered, just needs a little bit of fettling before she is road legal :) (bulbs and tyres mostly, but I will be replacing all the brake and fuel lines to be safe)

its taken a LOT of effort to get here so im very happy to have finally found one, its also my first car, so I have that excitement too :)

I have to say many thanks to Jean for giving me the tip off about this specific car a few months ago when I visited the RUMCar collection :)

Welcome home Chris.  you must be exhausted  after your travels I understand it was rather warmer on the Continent.  I think you are to be congratulated and we look forward to the next RCN. Jean

Dear Jean

I am back from my travels. In 10 days I managed to see 350+ microcars, mostly German and some that were very rare. Well worth the effort.

In my travels I have seen evidence that readers have received copies of Rumcar News 141 OK. If readers like what they read then they are unlikely to make any comment. If readers do not like what they read they start by complaining and then stop subscribing. In my experience people who subscribed to Rumcar News many years ago and stopped are rediscovering and liking Rumcar News.

The use of the forum is another matter.

Am I to assume that I am the only one to have received the latest RUM CAR NEWS?

I am sure that cannot be true.  If so why are you all so silent, does nobody read the Forum any more? Jean

I have received and read RCN141 Summer edition which has been distibuted whilst our Chris, our untiring Editor, is travelling around Europe, taking in the  second new Story rally on his way gathering more interesting articles for the next issue.  I think he must be congratulated on his most recent issue which because I have been without my computer for nearly a week I have been able to read from cover  to cover.
What a diverse selection of articles, and how good it is to see contributions from so many others.  Come everyone reading this give Chris a hand even if it is only an unusual photo with a caption, he does his bit travelling around to events to report on, lets all contribute to the best Microcar Magazine .

Have you received your copy? If not check that you have your 2019 subscription. Above all, please let the Forum know what you think, even if you don't agree with me, say what you want to see in the next issue and if possible provide some copy.  Remember Chris will always to edit it if you are worried your  writing abilities, He always sends you his version for you to approve before going to print and don't forget the pictures.  Jean
