Well spotted Brian!  It is nice to see your own car being driven by someone else, so you can see what it looks like on the road, the only thing I haven't done yet is be a back seat passenger!

Life is full of coincidences; a few months ago I was asked by my next door neighbours son if I could provide the B50 for his wedding car.
The address of the Bride's parents was in Rushden, Northamptonshire, only a few streets away from where one of 922EER's previous owners, Club member Brian Fenton lives.
So today as the bride was getting ready for her big day I met up with Brian for him to see the car for the first time since its restoration. The last time he has seen it was when he sold it 30 years ago.
Brian found a few more pictures he had taken of it in 1973, just about on the road, but in dire need of saving. Needless to say Brian was thrilled to be reacquainted with the car.......... the bride seemed very happy with her transport too!!

The hat is not a coincidence, I bought it especially to match my suit and the car!

Looking closely at enlarged 1973 photos of the car, it looks pretty close to being a goner then. The B50's are obviously much much stronger and rigid than they at first appear. I have travelled in and driven a few over the years and their ability to 'keep up' and handle well has always really impressed me.
Great car Ade. Not sure about the hat though!

Chris, if you look back to page 6 of this thread there are some photos of it taken in the late eighties, it was even worse then!
As to the rigidity, the B50 floorpan/chassis has a couple of strengthening box sections all the way along the floor as per the picture below, which certainly help keep things together, but I still get some scuttle shake over very rough roads.
Driving down the A43 dual carriageway around Brackley the other day I was crusing around 65MPH, so modern traffic was whizzing by, but at each roundabout I would catch the cars up again and accelerate past them coming off the roundabout. It might not quite have the finnese of a B20, but for its size it handles pretty well!!
