Great photos as always, Tim. However, I can't help but notice a certain Damiler Fleetline is conspicuously absent.

No 6015?

Kim will be upset!

Mr. 943KHA has told me there are a few more jobs to be done on it, - so perhaps it was indoors / in a workshop ?

6015 was in the servicing bay and may well be out and about at the Autumn Running Day plus Midland Red Day on Sunday 3 October 2021.

I took another photograph yesterday of a lovely Morris 12/4 reg. no. JF 7585 new in December 1934. I believe the '12' relates to 12 Horse Power and the '4' to 4 cylinder. HM Govt. registration site shows it as 1479 cc taxed for next 10 months!
