Meet Big Dog and A Win- this Post for you Merilyn
This Motorcycle is Big Dog - caught my eye.
A Labour of Love - made possible by the many hours of help from my brother and DH Corty Friends.A testimony of their generosity and goodwill.
Dia Duit, DH had a yen to go to the Torquay Car Show, that was on last weekend. It was a warm Summer's Day and some 350 cars were entered. DH was given an entry form, and you know what blokes are like.....grin....so I filled the form out.......much to my delight our car won first place for it's category.This car came into being, after being in some one's shed for 12 years, Hawk Eye (DH) spotted it on Ebay it was a bare shell, with a lot of parts missing. To be honest I was over cars, but like quilting is to me, cars are for DH. I relented, as you know DH has had spinal surgery, and suffers every hour of the day. People can be so giving, and makes me feel so humble. My brother did the hard yards, and came many weekends to prepare the car for paintwork, and as it is my brother's trade he painted the car for DH. All those missing parts, well since DH surgery I rang his buddy's to keep him company while I worked, and faithfully they come every week, to take him out for the day or help with the car. One particular buddy, came with a brown paper bag, and inside was all the missing gauges which pertained to the year and model of this car, car buddy's comment to DH was I think you will be needing these. I am ashamed to say, I miss little girlie, the first car DH restored, even though I could not master the driving of her, a boy's engine, she stole my heart. Slan O'faigh
