DORIS RETURNS !!!!!
Yes, it's true, after 11 years away,
Doris is back.
The bodywork is in need of attention as some of the paint has lifted, but
considering the respray in 2004 was a a panic job over one weekend, she hasn't
faired too badly.
There is a bit of reassembly needed to finish the install of new clutch &
starter bits, plus a couple of boxes of goodies that Adam had been collecting,
including new shocks, trumpets, arches, handles locks and sundry other bits
still to be discovered :)
Seems I have a bit of renovation and recomissioning to do!

lack of V8 antics, but heck it's summer, no time to be slaving away in the
garage when some fool keeps dragging me away to play sailings on a silly little
dinghy with far too much sail :) I know it's all a bit eco friendly, and
won't emit any sort of throbbing rumble, but hooray for entertaining cheap speed
