I'm excited to finally have my site live and ready to share Betsy with the rest of the world!

2021

Well, what can I say?  It was a funny old year, 2020.... and then 2021 was just as bad.

 

However, I did keep fluids topped up, oil changed, a once over of everything once a month to make sure everything was ship-shape (well, as much as I could without a 4-poster lift).

 

I took Betsy out for the occasional 100 mile round trip, clocking up a whole 1000 miles now since officially being back on the road.

 

Here's someone elses video that caught a glimpse of Betsy out and about in the summer sun.

 

 

Sadly, due to the automatic gearbox mechanical fault,  I managed to damage the rear end and passenger 1/4 panel of Betsy.

 

The metal & paint will be fixed and will look like new again, it's actually a nice time to get the whole paintwork re-touched up as it's been a few years now since it was painted.

 

This will also be a good time to dig out the old LT77 4-speed manual gearbox that I've had in the back of the garage for a few years now and perform a swap, along with fitting that 3.09 new diff, along with a front-disc brake upgrade....

 

 

Due to COVID and everyone being very busy - the car has sat in the back of the garage until January 2022.  Now it's just a question of time, effort and money to get it back on the road.  Roll-on mid-2022!
