NEWS AND VIEWS
Where has 2017 gone – December already! Firstly, Bill and I wish you and yours a Delightful Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year. The big news is that the car pictured in 1939 shown in the last issue, and below,has been found safe and well! Needless to say grandson of the wartime owners Tony Selman is delighted! So, another survivor added to the list.
Thanks to the DVLA I was able to make contact with the owners but at the time of writing I am still awaiting confirmation of the chassis number.
The car is in the Caister Castle Car Collection at Caister near Great Yarmouth; probably the largest and certainly the best privately owned motor collection open to the public in the UK. They have a website – search under Caister Castle Car Collection – and scrolling down the home page reveals a picture of the D sandwiched between a J2 and TF as shown here:
Before you go dashing off to look at it the Collection is closed for the winter so do check opening hours before you travel.
