Dutton Kit Cars and their owners
My mate and the cars we bought BT 136 and BT 137 both blue in the yard outside Dutton's factory, early days

John - very interesting to see these photos. Both you and your pal look a bit thoughtful! How did he get on with his car?
There was a bust up between TDW and DOC in the eighties I seem to remember, which resulted in TDW setting up Club Dutton as a factory sanctioned club but IIRC Club Dutton folded not long after Dutton closed. Former Mem sec Amber did an interview with TDW for the (I think) 25years of the DOC but he always seems to have blown hot and cold with Dutton owners sometimes seeming very genial and at other times quite disparaging.
Thought it was the Dutton Owners Club he was upset with not the car owners themselves
You may get a reply from Tim, he's been a little more relaxed with the sports car owners recently. Never hurts to try.
I remember collecting a friends Sierra. I had an hiab on the truck, spent the morning helping to load others with Sierra's and the odd Phaeton, it was collection day on a Saturday, Then had to pop across to Jago's to collect a T bucket for another mate. Well spotted Ade with the old E type.
Interesting theory I knew the bulge was E Type but it never occurred to me that it could have been from that car, I have just sent Tim Dutton a picture of my original bill the old factory shot and the car today, I wonder if i will get a reply?
That must be the E type he made the bonnet bulge mould from sitting in the background.
You'd have thought standing them on an empty pallet would have been an idea.
