Checkin' in from the Cambs/Norfolk border UK. Just picked up a '51 3100 from up your way Jock. Gets delivered on Monday so it'll be a long weekend. Bought it blind so hope it'll be all as promised
Welcome Andy,glad to see you've joined the gang, was your new truck from a fella Alex Gray in East Kilbride?
Is this your new 'toy'
by any chance?
EDIT: I have since chatted with Alex who confirmed this,it's a nice 'honest' relatively unmolested truck with bags of potential.
Did you get the visor too?
If so,they look terrible and you should give
it to me to run a consumer test...on mine!
As you can see by my previous post there are plenty of guys here catering for our obsession here in the UK now.
All my experiences in dealing with these vendors have been really positive and most if not all are considered friends now too.
The scene here on our little island is just too small to suffer any scammers and con merchants anyway,they'd probably get lynched. lol.
I must also mention the kind folks here,many of whom have helped source parts and even sent them to me before receiving a single dime from me.
It was all based on trust.......
Not wishing to tread on the Stovebolts toes,I'm not sure if you frequent 'Farcebook' but there are some UK based groups that cater for our old trucks,really handy for locating second hand parts (if required)and to keep an eye out for meetings and events.
I recently scored a real peach of an original RH front fender/wing from the NSRA swap meet in Essex amongst other truck goodies.
BTW There are hundreds
of these trucks here now.
Good luck on your new adventure!
