Va Va Voom
Regular readers will know that I don’t normally do “does anyone remember Fred Scroggins of Crackpot Road” posts – they’re interesting to no one except the asker, I hate family history (yes, even my own) and besides, that’s what Friends Reunited’s for.
But there are exceptions to every rule and today, I’m going to post two of them.
The first, mainly because there just isn’t a section on Friends Reunited for cars, is from the chap who’s lovingly restoring the 1964 Daimler Dart SP250 above. It’s made its way up to Sutton on Trent where Bob Curtis is spending every waking moment in it, under it or peering into the bonnet. And when it really is too cold to tinker, he’s indoors tracing all the former owners.
The one who’s got his goat is another Bob, Robert Frost Wilson, who lived in the cottage at Macartney House and owned the Dart between ’82 and ’88. New Bob thinks Old Bob was the guy who painted her red, but he’d like to be sure, and he’s just a little curious about the connection with Macartney House.
So – and I promise this isn’t going to become a habit – does anyone recall seeing this little beauty zipping around Greenwich in the 80s? Do you remember Bob? Or are you Bob?
