my Trojan was a little different on being purchased but oddly mine was supposedly painted to look like a bumble bee !!

Its obvious Richard: that red paint was so horrid I had to cover it in that multi-coloured Artex and flaking rust!

Like the advice on saving cheek ache!  ;D

The Bee goes everywhere with me so was essential to include in this adventure! I'd of liked a yellow Heinkel Trojan to do up as a bee but no need to repaint this one so those plans are unlikely!

The car under cover is a 1920's Humber.  The seller has done up a variety of interesting cars and then just keeps them nice without using them.  I'm privileged to of had the tip-off on this car and prise it out of his hands offering an enthusiastic and loving new home! (With a toy  bee as a travel mascot)

I'm a member of the Heinkel Trojan club so look forward to developing relations there too and I hope to take it along to Silverstone Classics.  There doesn't seem to be a Bubble Car club stand there, it needs one IMO! :D

Thanks for all your welcome's and comments! :)

Yes Flintstone Classic does seem to have slipped off the radar since I got a soaking there yonks ago. I think a lack of someone to take the infinitive and organize it. There are folk in the area but the active ones seem to be in a ring around it rather than on top of it. Yet Gaydon was offered for a few years to strokers and received little take up, indeed the last one featured more micro four strokes than two strokes!

Stef- a little clue to save your cheeks from a reversion of work load.
Al is likely a synthesiac who speaks in riddles embroidered by hyperbole, that are correctly interperable at many levels that you will likely become at least somewhat more familiar with over time.
Should you need a more direct answer, he will most likely respond to a personal message with something quite useful, as he really does have a helpful heart, and has likely had the most micro experience of anyone currently active in this group.
Good to see your smiling face.  Can we use it as a replacement for the original yellow smiley face in future posts? :)
