Default A long drive and new toy.

Spotted a little engine on facebook early this week and decided I needed it, just the problem of distance to deal with.
On the road at 5.30 am this morning, simple round trip and home by 5.o this evening.
I did however get to see Cheddar Gorge again, even if on a cold wet and misty winters morning.

Anyway here it is. (I hope)





Neil.

Nice, everyone needs a Mar-Vil (or two) and you have one with the weirdo Villiers suction carb.

One of my first engines was a marvil on a trolley driving a crop duster, it also had one of those carburetos, i couldnt get on with it so sold it.
