Only kidding we all know your 100% Teutonic beefcake :wink:

What age is the frame? Is it a candidate for the retro round Arran?

More to the point, what's under the tarpaulin?

Is that where you're keeping your Glentress gear until it's deloused?

Nice indeed! 8) 8) love the colour. Makes the boys wink you know :lol: :lol:

Today i got a mountain of paperwork through from the Jensen owners club archive. It contains all the paperwork from my cars early years (mainy letters of complaint about things not working and falling off culminating on the wiring setting on fire :roll: ).

Cool thing though is that i now know who the original owner was. It was sold new in Romsford by a Rolls Royce dealer in 1970. The owner was a guy called Robin Ellis who played Poldark in the 70's hit TV series. Cool!

My mate recons that he is the father of Sophie Ellis Bextor too but no amount of googling has confirmed this yet.

Nice history but you didn't have sophie ellis bextor in the back of your car :), her mum is Janet Ellis of Blue Peter and her dad was the Bextor part of her name.
