I am still trying to load a pic to my profile. I do not have any that it will take. Sorry no editing software so I can cut one down.

This looks about the best place for an intro as any?

JK4644 = 1934 Rytecraft Scooter-car used pre-war by what is now Caffyns Garage in Eastbourne as a run around to deliver small car parts. Car was rescued in mid 70's by current owner Alan Jones (my father) from a school that had taken it apart and messed around with it. The car still carries its last tax disc dated 1972.

I first drove the car when I was just 16 months old. At 18 moths old I was photographed driving the car by the West Sussex Gazette who ran a small story on it.  The car was never quite as it should have been as when it was acquired it had no floor, brake rods were not fitted, and it was in a pile of bits. Quite a lot of guess work was made to get the car running and driving.  Thanks to a recent web search I found this forum and a thread on the recent auction by Coys of the microcars.  An almost identical car was in that auction and those photos were exactly what was needed to get our car restored correctly.

To sum up JK4644 = Merlin Jones, son of the current owner Mr Alan Jones of Worthing.

Welcome Alan, would be nice to see some photos! If you have not yet done so I recommend registering it with RUM (see main site) this is free.

Right, it was the right Rytecraft, and now, not even a wrong Rytecraft, thanks to some craft, right?
