spotted in my workshop yard all week, since she arrived on a transporter last Saterday

you will see once young Sir Stevey baby ( myglaren ) adds the photo for me #-o :wink:

i got round to tinkering on her today, got her running well sort of, at least more than she were anyhow,
dont think she has ran since 96 or 98,

aparently she has had several people attempt to get her going, even bin sitting in a workshop/car repairer's who gave up trying, now said garage is closing down and previous owner is moving house, so Chris Salter saved/purchased her, and she was transported from Sittingbourne on a flat bed to my workshop

On its way to a restoration I guess...
I'm feeling a bit sorry for the I-Spy Citroen H-Vans thread, hasn't had a post since November 12th and its almost on Page 3 of French Car Chat!

If only you had your camera handy Jim you could have given it a bump!
