Have Car Will Travel

It was some time ago I photographed the owner preparing this car and other items. It was pleasing to see it again today looking rather splendid upon his narrowboat.

According to the DVLA it's on SORN but is black not white. Its MOT expired in 2012.

Re: Have Car Will Travel

Fascinating, Is it the equivalent of his shed at the end of the garden? Or has he done the clever thing and connected all the controls so that he can sail the barge from the comfort of the car?

Thanks Mark.

I'm liking the new outfit but taking my time to learn the 'innards' - one week at a time, especially as it seems to pass more quickly the older we get.

If only Anne and I had the time to return to Australia and make use of your climate and scenes we would be in seventh heaven again.

We both like your many stories with pictures which we look forward to.

Kindest regards

Barrie

Does he take it through a car wash?

Also, does he have to pay if he goes into the ULEZ?
