I couldn't think why # 1 son sent me this photograph and he reminded me of the green Ford Prefect
I used to drive
Pat: "Yes I do remember but can't place the timing. Obviously before the Spitfire. Can you remember how old you were?"
# 1 Son: "You ran us to Bidborough ( Village school) in it I think.
You certainly took a door off it reversing out of the garage."
I didn't remind him of how we found a new door from a reclamation yard and I bought paint to make it green like the car. I was told not to paint it in the rain ( it rained a lot in those days) but I thought as long as I did it in the garage all would be well. The garage was really an old stable - fairly open to the elements - as a result the colour dripped like a waterfall and when it dried it looked so very sixties I left it. Memories eh?
