    Hi,
    I am astounded and thrilled that my beloved MG TA rego number DRU 984 featured on the back page found a good home with Stewart Penfound and that he has brought it back to its former glory.

    I googled DRU984 just for hell of it and bingo what a surprise!

    I sold her while I lived in Tintern near Chepstow in December 1967 for 70 UK pounds (can you believe that?) so I could pay the 10 UK pounds to emigrate to Australia where I have been since. That’s the 43 years the article was talking about and maybe it was Stewart that I sold her to??

    I have photo’s of her from that time and of course here are many anecdotes about her that I would love to share with Stewart if he is interseted.

    I would be really greatful if you could get message this to him so we can share info. Many thanks

    Hi Graham,

    What a nice surprise! I did indeed buy the car from you all those years ago, and recall it starting to snow as we drove away in my new pride and joy. I would love to compare notes and look forward to getting in touch.

    Cheers for now,
