It’s not excessive, only three a year on average, but I think I’ll stop now…

Well done Alun, you are a true dolly legend!!!

If you can find the time, how about a summary of the highlights and lowlights of your century of Dolomite purchases? I reckon it could be quite interesting!

Suggestions for categories could be....


Worst buy ever?
Most rotten buy ever?
Best buy ever?
Most profitable buy ever?
Most messed about with/non-original ever?
Earliest Sprint bought ever?
The one that got away that you really regret not buying?
Most surprising when you got it home and had a good look at it ever?
Fastest sale/turnover ever?
The one you could not get rid of?
Furthest you ever went to get one?
Closest one?
The biggest shister/timewaster/wasted trip that you ever had to deal with?

I reckon you could write a book!!!



Cheers
Keith

Number 100 doesn't look like a "run of the mill" Dolly either?


Any info on this one Alun?

Well done for saving so many over the years.

I bought one that never made it off that infamous trailer in Alun's ownership, which must count as a quick turnaround!

Not sure if it counts as one of the "magic ton" though, as it was an 1850!

Wow that’s a milestone
With the love for all the cars comes knowledge and the drive to keep them and others on the road, from the scavenged parts, the ability to see the flaws and develop the parts for the rest of us.
Fantastic result, my misses would kill me though.

Well, I still have 16 of them...and I've sold 6 on as projects in the last 18 months or so...

[edit: 17, I forgot to count the one lost in the time warp otherwise known as Highley!!]
