My old Bond Mk C
« on: March 21, 2014, 01:16:31 PM »
Pictures of my Bond in 1964 taken on a box camera. You can just see my initials,RD, on the door. Found some old negatives and had them put on a DVD. It's the ex-Weiner Mk C sold last year that had had an engine and reg. number transplant after languishing in a dealers yard for years some years later after I had sold it.

That's the one. By the time it got to me it had a red hood, a number plate change and a 250cc   Engine. Later to be sold by me to someone else in the Rum car community. Then eventually it ended up in the Weiner museum, you know, the one that was impossible for him to sell as all the cars were put in a "trust"!

Yes, the photo was taken by my brother with one of those awful little cameras with a 110 film a few days after collecting the car from Newcastle.

(Some minutes later) Nice one Al. Just re-read your query. I wasn't then, but now? Yes, it's so sad to look in a mirror and see the formerly lithe and silky body slowly wrinkling away like a mouldy, quishy old tyre unable to hold up the body parts.  ;D

Sorry Rob, it was to good an elbow not to nudge. I knew you could take it.

Yes Richard, me, I find my boomerang doesn't come back any more.  :'(

Al, if you nudged me with an elbow nowadays I would fall over laughing like a kid of 7. I've given up getting old nowadays.

Bought a small Penny Farthing last week. Jumped on it without thinking and promptly fell off hurting both knees. Silly old sod!  :-[
