Well with the Amanco gone to a new home thought I would share what has been acquired to replace it in working clothes with a lot of original paint and decals still in place hopefully pick up in the next couple of days, link to vid of it running plus some pics below

it went to a better home matt, I wouldn't have the time - I just like to drool at them on here but if a small hit n miss restored came along I would be tempted.

At last she's made it home, just need to give it a quick light rub over with an oily rag and she's ready for her first rally next weekend
