1924 Austin 12

bundy1924 Austin 12Owned by    Geoffrey and Mariae Doherty x


When Geoffrey purchased this car in 1969 it was in ‘basically complete’ condition, It’s a nice term. But it really means that the new owner will find most of the parts he will need to recondition all in the one spot.

The car had spent a few years at Curtis Island before Geoffrey bought it. And one of the items missing was the clock, it seems the original owner had removed it in 1956. Before it was sold to the Curtis Island owner. In 1988 the clock found its way back where it belonged when Geoffrey managed to negotiate its return to the original owner.





I have always had a wonderful memory. when I say “wonderful memory” what I really mean is that I rarely if ever recall horrible things like the weather. I never recall cold or frosty mornings, or even 24 hours of anything dull or boring that might have happened before or after a memorable event, the happy result being all my life's memories are wonderful. Peculiar as it may sound to anyone who might be reading this, I have absolutely marvelous memories that range from breaking one or more of my bones to hanging upside down from an upper branch of an Oak tree with my ankle wedged between two branches. I have heard stories about people that have totally removed from their recollection painful events that had previously occurred in their life. I can believe this because at this precise moment I can recall nothing that was not absolutely wonderful. If by chance I have ever blocked out anything painful I would consider this possibility to be just another wonderful thing. I intend to Blog about my friends and memories on these pages.
