Uncle Doug on here may know of Willetts, (sp?) in the UK? Going back now to 2005.

They sold me a pup. Which luckily, I did NOT put in my container.

It is a LONG story.

The only reason I sniffed that Willets Landy out before it got on the boat is that my parents lived in Swansea, base of the UK DVLA. (Vehicle and driver's license admin center for whole UK.) Willet's were slow to send me needed import docs for the 110 I bought off them, so I went to DVLA in person with its plate number, Willets had given me, and started making a fuss.

THEN the can of worms opened BIG TIME.
The Willet's are whats known as pickey's/gypsy's. The lot behind their business is full of occupied caravans. They change their ebay seller name regularly due to horrible feed back.
Laws seemingly do no apply to them.

She certainly looks like it was parked out in the open and not touched for the entire time in federal custody.... But I'm glad to have it back.

It is a wondrous sight to behold sir! And, I bet it brings a smile to you face every time you look in the rear view mirror!

Just out of curiosity, how far are you from the following address:

1200 New Jersey Ave SE, Washington, DC 20590

I think you should drive ol' Red by there, at least once. You know, just because..........
