yeah, got scrapped, the last guy who bought realised how much work was needed, it was offered over on the NSRA forum but no takers, i knew the guy who built it (Neil Genge) he was one of our crowd back way back when............

Love the gold Corsair in the pics, built by Mick Wills with a very subtle but effective chop.

Here are a few pics. When I have scanned my old 35mm photos will post a few more UK ones.

I used to have the Dorset and confess to often going out in the garage alone and running my hands over that smooth chop (done whilst under the ownership of Dave Rose from the IOW I think, then very nicely finished by Tony Puttick).

So who's got a pic of the Smoke City Wheelers bus then - must be the most famous ever UK chop?

had the anglia about 20 years?
was part way through rebuilding it, again,
this time with a 454 b/b chevy,
then suddenly decided to move it on, had enough i suppose?
sold all the parts off separate and the complete shell went to Julian at pop parts plus, no idea where it is now?

the bus initially went to some restorers who intended to unchop it!
they moved it on to some guys who took it to the footie world cup in Germany,
think it was up for sale recently.
