    Nationals 82 Memory

    This was the first year I did.
    Enjoyed the whole weekend very much, young and single.
    I was in my Morris Minor (minor modification) Had to have a name due to it being the eighties. Nothing changes there, latest car is called Purple Rain. I love the eighties style of rod, street car etc. But then again I like all styles.
    Traveled down with Neil Meredith (F type) My sister Beetle), Al Maiden (ragtop capri), plus more.
    Lasting memories were meeting up with Paul Gatty, Tony Thacker, Also I think it was the year we knocked around with Lynden (TRU 57, chevy) He was on form that weekend with non stop jokes, told in a strange accent

    I thought you had a pic, was it on the UK Hotrods site? You didn't fly very far as I recall! Sis is Helen? Didn't she have a stock perpendicular Prefect and a Beetle? Sad to report the Galaxie got scrapped a few years later so the dent was the least of its worries, lol. Shame really as it was pretty solid.
