The Reliant Story (Exports) 1967
This was a lost BBC film I found in 1992 from a series about Exports. It
was transposed off 18mm film into VHS by the BBC who then kept a copy for
3.5 litre V8 Reliant Robin.
1976 Reliant Robin with a 3.5 litre V8 Rover engine driving off its trailer
for a display in Tamworth. It's a Reliant that boy racers wish they hadn't
tried to race as they trail behind sucking in the Exhaust fumes. :o) (

Off to a new home!
Finally after moving house I have space in the garage at home to move Lucie
(A 1961 Reliant Regal Mk VI) into and hand back the keys to the council for
the garage. I shall now be able to take her for a spin without wondering if
someone has parked infront of the garage when I get there and end up
knocking on dorrs to see who it is. As she was cold the choke was out hence
the fast tick over and the back is still full of gardening tools rolling
around which are the thuds and clatters you hear.
