Just like with classics, it is also possible with parts for classic transport Verkeerd Afgelopen to be. Recently searching for an address in the UK - without GPS! - entered the wrong street. It was once again proven that things on the island are all different than expected.

Is there suddenly a so-called on a garden wall? rib case gearbox for an MG Midget or Austin-Healey Sprite. The coveted 'ripple gearbox', an improvement on the standard 'smooth' gearbox. Judging by the traces on the wall, as well as the enthusiastic moss formation on the gearbox, it was already there for longer than a few days. Our enthusiasm aroused the attention of the owner, who came out almost immediately. Still just asked what the purpose of this was? Believe it or not, about six years ago someone had bought the container, paid for it with a (covered) check to pick it up later. And the latter had not happened yet… It should not get crazier? No, we were not allowed to take it with us. The new owner ultimately had to decide on that. May perhaps take a while?
