MOE reunited

I had to go to Shrewsbury today to see Mom who is very ill in hospital, I took MOE out on a proving run to Shrewsbury Hospital which was very nice, after seeing mom, I returned to the Telford area to see my brother, and then to Shifnal in Shropshire to take MOE back to see Peter Clark, who was the previous owner, Pete owned MOE from 1968 til Oct 07 and has extensively modified her over the years (in a good way!)

It was great to take Pete out for a drive, and show him the results of the mods I have had carried out, and that the original character was still there.
After dropping Pete back at his house I went to Coventry to see someone from the club, just as I got to Cov there was a strange chirruping noise that developed, which sounded to me like a wheel bearing failure, it stopped and when I applied the brakes at the motorway junction, ah I thought it was a stone in the brakes......then I noticed the speedo wasn't working..........ah well it was way out reading 55 when doing 71 so now an opportunity to get a new unit and get it calibrated correctly.
