Tom and his 1.6L

Post by Fordoholic Nick » Thu Jun 20, 2019 1:58 am

So, there I was yesterday evening (weds) sitting on my. Bus on the bus stand at Muswell Hill, on my new Huawei P30 Pro browsing on this forum :) when suddenly I heard BEEP BEEP!!! Not the BEEP sound you get from a modern car... No siree... This was deffo a BEEP from a CLASSIC car for sure. Low and behold as I look up there is Tom in his glorious Corsican Blue 1.6L :D

He parked up down a side street then raced back up to come over to say hello to me on the bus stand for a few mins before I had to go pick up my passengers .He then caught me up at the bottom of the hill and pulled up right beside my bus. Made my bleeding day did this....

Thanks Tom.!!! :cheers:

Your Capri really is a credit to you mate and great to hear all the jobs you are getting done :)

Keep up the great work :applaud:

That’s great I do have a very strange picture in my head of a bus stand and your bus going around in a circle :lol:
Hope to catch up with young Tom at the Ace and see his mighty Capri :beer:

Good to see you again Nick and this afternoon, having gone out thanks to the lovely sun, passed him again down by the park gates.

I hate to break it to you guys but Nick's standards are definitely slipping... his double decker didn't seem to have lowering springs fitted :o and let's not mention the street sweeper.
