Jim and Rob's Awesome Adventure

Wednesday October 8th, it was a typical fall day with the sun, the cloud, and the on and off drizzle.

Jim Ellis and Rob Ockenden were after an Austin A40 Devon from Don Whitehead in Bolton.

Driving down Hwy 50, trailer empty

The apple of Jim's automotive eye.
I shall forever call him "EKIN" (DW)

Jim in his natural state

And damn happy about it

There are a couple more under scrutiny
Landrover #1 and a Renault Alliance

Landrover #1, if the bulkhead looks like this, it's parts

Measuring Land Rover #1

Landrover #2 front wings needed some extra, to suport the spots

Jim under Landrover #2
Andrea, you really need to get this boy some new work pants

Measuring Land Rover #2

My friend Alec on his first automotive road trip
He pushed car in and out of cover
Will he come on another?

Don has this all set up to start

it just needed some gas and an electrical connection for the pump

Where it came to life

Just like it was new off the lot

It ran great and we were assured it would stop, so with quick measures for the ramps Don drove Ekin up on the trailer.

All done, lash it down

There was one more rim and tire in the back of this J4 somewhere

Lashing it down was a bit of a pain

And, when it was done there was time for celebration

Jim and Rob can now head for home
