I really love your little car:) and to see it outside Scripps Garage, thank you so much for showing it.

Did you drive it there for the photo, I really enjoy the TV series Heartbeat, and from what I remember Scripps Garage get a lot go there for photos.

Don't know a lot about the engine, but Bob and Timbo would, however, being a biker Girl myself and had a number of small bikes in the past and done a bit of competition riding, do know it's from an old motor bike, villiers one cyl: two stroke I think.

Very nice classic car, and not many about now, last one I had here was a van and very rough as I remember, not seen any about in Herefordshire for years:(

Timbo has seven bubble cars, yes seven of them.

Your Bond looks to be in very good condition, nice to hear that it gets out and about. Do you have any pics of the 875?

sorry but cant find photo it is on CD , will post later
photo is of the 875 / Imp rear cross member , Imp sport drive shafts - additional springs to assist sag when towing - the long and short angle is to support the glass fibre floor on the 875 , the flexing causes the Imp cross member to split .

The Hillman imp set up, had a imp many years ago, bad for oil leaks and to light on the front, but the engine set up was used in a number of things, big rubber doe nuts fit on the drive shafts you can see in Mr Tracks photo to drive the road wheels.
