well chaps , another little tail about collecting an s2 appia from norfolk, don cross told me that he new of an appia , didn't know any details other than it was spares material, i phoned about it , spoke to a really nice guy, he said it was an s2, ideal for me as i need s2 doors bonnet etc for my pickup,
anyway back to the plot, saturday morning myself and my amigo warby set off at 5am on our trip, both knackered from only a few hrs sleep, A5 was terrible, freezing fog and we were down to 30mph, it looked like it was going to be a long day, we stopped for fuel and snacks for the trip, the attendant was very helpfull and takes a good photo

after the pit stop we charged on making good time, we arrived at jeremy's house at 9.45, things were looking good , he had some spares new and secondhand which we loaded into the van first, at this point i still hadn't actually seen the car, myself and matty took a walk around the back of the house to have a look, 1st thing that struck me was that it was an s3 not an s2, ........have a look

then we had the problem that the car was "well and truely stuck!!", we basically had to winch it out and steer it with a winch also as the steering had rusted up solid too!!

in the meen time i dismantled anything that would just fall off on the way home (most of the front end) and removed the rear screen     (with 1 hand!!!!) anyway 3hrs later! we managed to get the car pointing at the car trailer ready to winch on, in this 3hr period we'd had quite a good downfall of rain , rain +van & trailer on grass = REALLY NOT GOOD!!!!

My only concern would be if the thorns have scratched the paint  Grin

I'll have to remind myself in spring when we go across there, to have a look.

the fulvia has TOTALLY collapsed, however it does appear to have a full set of alloy panels, boot is definatly, the owner seems to think the bonnet is and from what i could see "from 6ft away and through brambles" the doors appear to have bits of alloy showing through chipped off paint, real shame and totally beyond any restoration prospect, however it could source some good parts  Huh?

 i'm glad we amused you, its worth the effort if you know you've had someone laugh  Cheesy did anyone notice the "GREEN CARPETS" in the back of it  Cheesy , i'm absolutly knackered today, however i'm sure i'll be recovered for next weekends adventures of exeter collecting the appia pickup from allan wesson  Grin, my christmass pressent to myself !! highlight of yesterday for me was when we parked in the layby to take some pics of the car on the trailer and check everything was still there, a man came to ask us if we were ok ?? did we need any help?? looking at matty i don't know if he meant mentally or were we in trouble  Cheesy if you look in the photo just infront of the ducato is a black 206, his misses was in stiches when we pulled up lol,

I'm surprised that he even stopped, who in their right minds would stop and ask Warby if he was ok, let alone when dressed up a Pancho Villa Cheesy
