Back in 1984 I was 20 something and fell in love with the shape of the AH. I purchased a running, but rather tatty 100 from a dealer near Manchester and drove it for a few years. Then life took over, a relocation to the USA, marriage, family, business startup, that kind of thing. Well finally this past Thursday Bev was loaded onto a U-Haul and pulled to Wisconsin. (463 BEV is its UK plate). So my Oct 54 build date RHD 100 will spend the next several months in the presence of some close siblings as it comes back to life.

Cedarburg it is:fat: Tom already gave me an education into things like the matched pillars and windshield of the 100. Turns out mine are not matched or original to the car, I am really looking forward to the process. I made my mind up a couple of years ago when following Randy Hicks M resto that mine would go to Cedarburg.

It's in good hands now. Get your insurance updated, your restored car will need much more coverage when completed.:encouragement:
