I'd say you found a good guy there. He has done a lovely job and it looks a stunner... Well done, I've had my car 16 months and I'm still at it, saying that I get carried away and go deeper and deeper and suddenly find more things to buy and fit.... Any way. Nice one :respekt:

Hi folks,

Just a quick 'thanks' to those of you who have left positive comments about my GLS. I took it to its first show today as part of the Cromer Carnival week and it was nice to see people taking time to look at it. More than once I heard 'My dad had one of those'...!! Oh yes indeed...!

Here's another pic I took of it during the week; a summer time image just prior to the bales of wheat being collected.

This is what PFL 761R would have looked like it 1977.... when everything was in Black & White...(!) :thanx:
