Hi PM, Part 2
Hi all yes the Bumper i say no more..................
Anyway old pictures of auctions always hurt if you can't remember why you didn't buy a slot you still want now many years later, and you wonder who has it now and will it come up for sale.
Help is at hand very often i took pictures of why i didn't buy this auction had many bandits that were recreations pretty but not going to increase in value or collectabillity.
Buyer beware at any auction,we had a good day bought nothing tea was disgusting cold and a long long way from London.
Faces not shown to protect the guilty.
Part 3 coming soon.

Correct, one John down, although his son is active in the more modern field of machines on Facebook.

The dodgy Tura eventually was sold to a Californian Business man. He paid the asking price, arranged for UPS to collect it on the Monday, they packaged and packed it, I got an email from him less than 30 hours later to say it had arrived and he was thrilled.
He told me he had no intention of changing anything on it.
