Neil Liberman is selling his 1300 Melos. Which was recently MOT'ed. Wayne Ollerenshaw has the details - check his posts over the last couple of days.

I have had several Duttons…..in all states of repair….. but never really had any of them long enough to join in with the club activities.


Having said that, I have also owned/built/rebuilt a Nomad, Spartan Treka, Clan Crusader, Marlin Berlinetta, and several Mini Scamps.

I’ve been involved with the Scamps quite a bit.  

“Noddy” cars – Probably marmite styling but I still like them……and if you know of one for sale at a reasonable price going cheap then please let me know….but no projects (thanks)


Will be at Stoneleigh, we have camping tickets but unlikely to be in a “kit car” this year……as I’ve be trying to clear out the projects (& Junk).


So hope to see you there.






PS@ Will try to be less “wordy” in future

Hi Guys,


S1 is a bit rough at the moment......seized steering & brakes, no clutch, dodgy electrics, everything needs going over, etc, etc,

BUT I have got it running ! Great Noise ! And I just love the shape of the S1


I owned this car about ten years ago but redundancy forced its sale before I had a chance to rebuild it.


However, as it soon as it was loaded on the trailer (10 years ago) I knew I made a mistake…….and I’ve spent the last 3 years trying to find it. In fact, I did register on this site at one stage.


I managed to buy it back in the Autumn……so the rebuild has to begin…..target is next years Stoneleigh or before. This will be a “Dad ‘n’ lad” project that must be finished next Spring.


Have to thank some of the members on here who tried to locate it for me and Dave Hudd who gave me some really good contacts.

Welcome to the gang, Dave. You will have to bring us up to speed on your cars but some on here struggle with words, so plenty of pictures is a good idea.
