That would be Musapha then, from down Sarfe. Don't leave any T's lying abaa, I'll nick 'em, I wilw.

With all the various dropped letters from round Britain, its W before O's round here, it allows them to be collected and exported cheap so the Poles could have their language from all the unused letters. An intuitive from before the EEC so it works!

Hello Musty,
As far as I know there are only six Gordons left in the UK in various conditions. I don't think any of them are for sale, although saying that a price of 10 grand was muted for one about 5 years ago. Could there be any more out there? They were supposed to be made of galvanised steel and alloy but still rotted away.
Rob.  ;D

Just found this matchbox from 1992 in a collection of rubbish I was sorting through. Hammond & Gordon, now where have I heard those names before?

Reminds me of our trip to Sweden...

We went to see Gunnar Sjolin with Anders Johnsson, and Gunnar showed us his microcars and related toys.
He had an old puzzle, picture is a basic drawing, and (I think on the right, definiatally one end) you can see the front (or back, dont remember) of a Heinkel! You hardly see any of it, the only ay to tell is seeing the windows...

I expect he is one of those telephone cold callers. " Heeloo, can I speak with Mr. Yingleberry. My name is Gordon AKA Mustapha. I am not selling anything but I like reading from off my
computer screen. Can you tell me if you have a granny called Matilda Bumfluff as she has had an accident in her car from this address and she can collect a lot of pennies in compen-say-shun if she send some loot to us in North Africa. Thank you very much."  ;D

Coo Eck! We sold our ex dealer one for £50!

I think our jolly banter has put our new bud off.
