Following on from the conversation about The Italian Job film, here is the same film with a more appropriate soundtrack! I know this was used at the beginning of the original film and not the end when the coach goes over the edge, (sorry if I've spoiled the ending for anyone!) so we've swapped a Lamborghini Miura for a Bristol LH and 'Big William' is played by Andy Watkins.
Another video of 3131, again with Andy at the wheel as he takes her down the notorious Winchelsea hairpin along with some thoughts on the classic film 'The Italian Job'!
This was filmed coming back from Hastings Bus Rally yesterday as Andy drove 3131 back through the East Sussex countryside.
Andy and myself had very busy Sunday yesterday when we took 3131 for a run to deliver some National parts to the yard. I then brought back 7980 whilst Andy got to grips with 3131. 7980 is now living undercover with 3131 and work will begin on her rather tired bodywork to spruce her up and get her ready for an MOT. After she was squeezed inside the shed, we scrubbed the grime off of 3131's roof ready for next weekend's trip to Hastings. The roof is now white as opposed to the snotty gray it was before!
The report for this fantastic weekend is now up on line. You can read it HERE. 3131 ran very well over the two day event and proved to be very economical with the fuel. Don't forget, 3131 will be attending the Hastings Bus Rally at The Oval, Hastings this Sunday (20th May).
