Re: Squire's voitures

I reckon the tennis ball is to put onto the bonnet catch whilst working on the car to prevent any unpleasant head injury.

There’s a breaker with the front of a mk2 tranny in Rochdale near the tip. It’s a light blue cab and looks to be complete with wings and bonnet, doors etc.

I’ll ask the next time I go past this week if you need anything.
Do you live in/near Rochdale?
