    Been a while since I've posted on here, not much has changed , still got the 73 Mach1, still run it on the strip from time to time, we are losing one great venue in the UK, Shakespeare County Raceway which will ultimately become a massive housing estate, I have however gained a strip right close to where I live- Spitfire Raceway, on the site of former RAF Perranporth. Also have somehow become the owner of a Dodge A108 Sportsman, just happened, sort of an impulse purchase lol. Hope all is good everybody. DSC_0024 (2) by Michael Fisher, on Flickr

    Love that 73. I'm gonna get one of those body styles one of these days.

    We lost a track here as well. The track I called "home" for years was sold, the new owners ran it for a couple of years and were really turning things around, then right in the middle of a season said "we're done, the track is for sale." It sat dormant for two years and was just recently auctioned off. Rumor has it the new owners are going to turn it in to a solar field.

      Hey Mike, I for one missed you. Hang around. Cool pictures !!! That white building in Pic#2 looks like a tiny castle. Was it for tiny princes & princesses ? I love movies about those days with Knights jousting or the nasty sheriff looking for Robin Hood ........... I think Errol Flynn was the best Robin Hood. Of course I like the OLD movies, better than these new ones with all the special effects.
      I'm still thinking of selling both my Mustangs, and would even think about selling them overseas, and in the U.K.

      Is there a better market in the U.K. ? And would it be complicated ? Would the cost of shipping cancel out the higher price ?
      Lots of questions buddy... sorry !

      Anyway, don't be a stranger. Having a "BRIT" around is cool .............. I hope the title "BRIT", isn't taken as an ethnic slur, in this world of Political Correctness ...

        Nice to see our oldest member posting again.

        Your vehicles look, as a British friend of mine likes saying, quite tidy.

          lol It's called the 'Huers Hut' and was used as a lookout point to guide the fishing fleet back in the 1300's

          Tricky...although Mustangs are still fetching good money over here, folk tend to import solid fixer-uppers rather than fully sorted cars, yours being so well turned out would sell here no problem! Could put you in contact with people who bring them across to sell.

              Thanks Mike. I sent you a P/M here .... I haven't used the PM here at M&M since the change over to this new board. Anyway, I included my new E-Mail address also. I'd appreciate any contact info with people familiar with overseas sales.

              BTW, as dumb as I am, I have no idea what a "CORNISH" is ................... I know Scottish and Welsh, but the only Cornish I know is the hen on the menu in an expensive restaurant ...
