Post by Phil P »

Hello everybody, well everybody who remembers me, l am back. five years or so older but l am back. lt only took my daughter only about 3 hours. shame it took so long. A stroke later and that was the end to my Dodge exploits, for now. l've bought a Dodge Luxury Liner sedan but sold my Leyland Hippo after 37 years but still in the family.

Hello Phil, and Hello to all of you :D

... at some time we all may came to the point where we needed a “ time-out ” or just run out of time.

Missing to go on my beloved WW2 exhibitions, hopefully it might be possible again maybe in autumn.
This week I updated the Build Card page with two new BC.

Lovely greetings

I am doing ok at the moment ,but lost a lot of mussel tone .So i cannot lift etc like i used to do ,before the op . My dodge wc53 is still regoed and on the road ,.Not that i drove it much last year . If thing,s get better down under ,i hope to get out and about a bit more often in it .My ambo has not had much work done on it recently . Still 95 o/o complet and out of the weather.Hope every one is safe and well This shitty virus will be a thing of the past ,soon i hope . Anyway keep safe .Ray
