The copies of the magazine arrived on our doorstep on Monday midday.  One for me, one for the Hammond Colllection and one for the archive.  I have not had time to read it through from cover to cover yet but there are some very interesting articles in it.  As Chris says the Winter issue  deadline of November 15th will be upon us before we know it, so please support our editor and put pen to paper now.  I know he feels his by-line appears on far too many pages.  So many of you have interesting stories to relate and if you don't think your prose is good enough to print, Chris is an extremely good editor and is adept at producing an article from the bare bones and some pictures.  It's your magazine, please let's hear from you.  Thanks Chris, another great issue, I can't beleive the miles you travel to cover all these events.  Jean

Unusual Microcar Discussion / Re: Blue Star Garages
« Last Post by Albion on September 20, 2017, 09:00:55 AM »
Blue Star Garages started by my father Maurice Deen in early 1930's we had 275 garages nationwide , plus battery factories Coronet Cars at one moment and many other companies . My dad dies in 1971 and to satisfy his ' young ' wife the company was sold half to Texaco and the rest otherwise all against my wishes . I bought 3 sites for redevelopment . Today even a reduced chain would be worth over £400 million but thats life ! John DEEN

Hi Mark,

Thanks for your kind comments.

Good there's another in Kent! I'm unlikely to be at any more shows this year, but you are very welcome to come and have a look.

Latest update is last week I fitted a new exact copy Invacar nose badge that I had specially made by a specialists Pamela David Enamels http://www.badgecraft.co.uk, plus fitted a correct 12 inch wheel on the front that I'd had refurbished, as well as a new speedo cable made for me by Sppedograph Richfield. Helps to know what speed it goes!

Also had a tune up, so runs really sweetly now. Just need to fit a new roof-to-body seal and that's pretty much it done.

Hello Neal,

It looks a fine job you have done there.  I'm at the other end of Kent (Ramsgate) and recently acquired my first Model 70.  It will need the shell sorting in time to look as good as yours though...!

Are you planning on showing the Invacar anywhere this year - would be worth traveling to take a look :-)

Cheers
Mark

Dear Rumcar News Readers

Due to some problems with the digital printing machine issue 134 was not sent out until Friday afternoon 15 September 2017. This means you should be receiving your copy through the post any day next week 18-23 September 2017.

The digital issues will be sent out just as soon as I have finished this message.

Another issue packed full of your usual mix of the unusual and the interesting in the Microcar world.

The next editorial deadline will be 15 November (only 9 weeks away) If you have anything interesting I can add to the next issue. Please send it in as you are the experts.
