Friday May 14th
1st time I (Steve)
had seen CDK 172L in 18 years - first impressions are .....
Tues 18th May
Having made sure 172L was able to be moved to
have a close look at her I (Steve) took a very experienced PSV
mechanic and a good friend Pete Johnson over to Carrington to see if
she was worth buying - Do you know- the bloody thing started up 1st
time and just sat there in glorious sunshine, ticking over like it
Pete gave her a good check-over mechanically - and apart
from a very slight air leak on the N/s, 172 was declared sound!
Body wise, I was amazed at how original and more remarkably,
undamaged the whole coach was.
A price was agreed - and
so the fund raising began.
CDK 172 moved for inspection
