If anyone has squirreled anything away over the years, I am look for any bits for Julien MM5, in particular the cast emblem on the front see pic.

Tony Marshall used a Julian MM5 as a MYSTERY CAR in a past issue of RUMCAR News.
There may not be any out there, but I am hoping that rather than scrap one in the past, someone pulled off the interesting pieces and saved them?
I am trying to gain access to the one in the pic to possibly take more detailed photos, measurements and make a reproduction piece, but it never hurts to toss out a net and see if anyone recalls having such a thing in their stash of oddball items.

"MAJ", ah...I wondered what that was for....

oh god, the thing came from Goldies!  that's great.
Also as far as I know, that car is the one that was restored and later sold at auction.

Ah yes, goldie's eBay listings are the works of a genius.

Interesting cars and a house big enough to swing in
