Im not sure if anyone will be intrested in this becasue it not going to be your every day Hot Rod.But here it goes

I brought this car when i was 16 for £75 at Webs Garage just outside South Cerney, Cirencester.He told me i can buy it of him as long as you put i back how it was

(I nodded yes but in my head i said to myself she`s should make an good hot rod)

My dad was going to help me so he welded in an new floor and heel board.But my dad also owns an 56 mk2 ford Zephry 3rd oldist in the country that need restoreing so he could really spend alot of time on the hornet.And i could`nt weled neaver so i left it for 2 years.i manged to get myself an job and my first wages i brought an MIG WELEDER so i started to work on the old girl and doing the weleding myself.

When i first got her




Dad cut the old floor out


And then i took over with the weleding started to do the boot floor

This little bad boy rocked up at Krisy Kreme earlier this year. No idea if it was a Hornet or an Elf. But it looked kinda fun. Ain't seen it since.
