Re: Python

Yes David.....Green is not my idea of "right", although I'm not superstitious.....but I suppose it gets you noticed! Paul......it would be a great idea to have these brochures scanned and available online if possible.....not sure how we'd stand on copyright issues etc though. I have an original Tang...

Re: Python

Yes, I remember the ads for these, and had that piccy somewhere too.......not sure if I may have seen one at a show many years ago.......don't think I've ever seen one in the flesh though.

Re: It says it's a moth.....

With that insignia, and the overall appearance, it is hard to believe it isn't somehow Moth related........but not as we know it. I have a vague recollection of a Flying Moth......but that insignia??? An interesting one for sure......just as well it's a long drive away :)

Re: Wanted Classic moth or lowrider

My Europa (K2588) is available......all the hard work has been done......a few bits of minor carpentry to do and then just paint and varnish. Realistically I am unlikely to sail this, mainly due to injuring my neck earlier this year, which is now causing me real problems. Just PM me if this is of an...

Re: National 12 "Spider" and my Europa Moth for sale

Hopefully Spider is now safe and sound in Swindon......sad to see her go, but the right decision under the circumstances......as evidenced by the most almighty commotion/street brawl half an hour ago in what was a nice quiet street this afternoon when Spider was being loaded......thankfully we weren...

Re: National 12 "Spider" and my Europa Moth for sale

Thank you Stephen.....yes it is a sad situation all round.

If no-one on here is able to take Spider on, then I think I'll have to try and finish her off and put her online in a more general way......but I would like to part with her before the School holidays start really!

All offers considered.

I need to get the car back in the g...

OK mast.

Some of you may remember that I have a Proctor OK mast that I am storing after Alan left for France and had to part with it........Nigel in Bristol said he would have it some time ago, and I have kept it for him........I need to move it on (and various other items....see ebay) as plans are uncertain...
