Doug Bailey recently heard from Leigh Spivey and we share his email here...
Just a quick update to let you know how we are all doing It was nice to talk to you while we were in the US - good to hear your voice! We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Florida and look forward to our next visit in Spring - fingers crossed. Went to pick up the hydraulics for the top from Convertible Tops Inc. and were made very welcome . They copied some photos of the Eldo I had to put on their website. Packed them in all in a box and just walked straight through our Customs - saved about $200 dollars on postage and duty doing it like that. Fitting them is a winter project now. Got a new OE fuel filter posted to the villa from California as well .
As you can see from the enclosed photo the fuel system is all back together and the car is now running like a dream. Pity we have missed most of the big Shows, though Our small Town is putting on a 1940`s weekend this weekend with WW2 aircraft fly past, military vehicle parades, re-enactors plus normal classic cars and lots of `40`s music — should be quite good. Should have had the Austin 7 on the road though - that's the right era. Hopefully everybody will be dressed up as well - shopkeepers as well - but they won`t be selling at 40`s prices though. We are helping to put up display in the Market Hall later this week. We have quite a bit of wartime memorabilia what with my Dad being in the RAF, Thanks once again for your help with the fuel problems.
Take Care, Leigh.
