    My 57 and the Battersea Boys (again).

    Hello. A VIP asked if I could repost this thread from the "other" side. Apologies to those who have seen it.

    Pic 1, Outside Daryles house where I bought the 57.
    Pic 2, At the docks in New York waiting for a boat to Blighty.
    Pic 3, Visiting the Queens house. Yes. I know the 57 came from New York. So why has it got California tags? Cos they look better. The 57 wouldn't start after taking this picture. Two cops on motorbikes stopped to give me a push start.
    Pic 4, 58 trying to look as good as a 57. (Sorry Milt).
    Pic 5, Still trying.
