Christopher how are you doing?

It is several months before the National Meeting and as such, I was wondering if you had thought of presenting OVP to either the POL or the meeting at Gaydon or both? I read on another thread that Sean Car had offered a full body spray for nothing except for the cost of the paint. If this is correct, maybe it is opportunity for you to consider. If there are logistical problems with this, I suspect there are resourceful members in the club who could be called upon to help.

It would be lovely if OVP and the surviving S reg cars were able to come together for a photo shoot at Gaydon given the place these cars have in the history of MGR. I believe the launch cars will be celebrating the event. Can we make it happen also for the pre-launch ones as well

I am hoping you will be able to find the time to get back to us about OVP as there is still a lot of interest in the car and this is why I have posted this up instead of sending you a private message. Positive thoughts

Regards

Phil

Totally agree Phil, it would be a nice occasion for an outing of the car. No matter how the car is presentation wise, it always manages to attract attention.

Your location looks exotic Phil, hope your back in London and attending the weekend, it would be nice to catch up.

Phil, I will respond privately because experience tells me that whatever I write gets taken the wrong way by each of the different camps. Suffice it to say I am not opposed to your idea, I think its a good just need to talk practicalities etc.

Best

Thanks for your support Paul. The point you make on how the car is presented, is of course an important one and on reflection I think that even if it was not up to scratch, that in itself can be considered as part of OVP's ongoing restoration.

Even though Kenya and South Africa has its problems Paul, I count my blessings being able to write from such a lovely location. I am back in March and looking forward to catching up with you. It was fun to see Paul, Andrew and yourself in one of the recent photos of OVP. It is amazing to see how many people have been involved in the car over the years

Christopher given what you have said, it will be good to talk through the logistics/practical issues for OVP. I look forward to hearing from you privately. Thanks for getting back to me

Kind regards

Phil
