Taking Toby’s Eleanor For a Drive

Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

It’s been quite a few years posting about Toby’s project and the ups and downs that go with it. The fact that I had never actually seen the car in person yet knew just about everything about it meant there was only one more thing to do. That was to go and see it for […]

That’s right. After years of posting, talking, gloating and crying Toby’s Eleanor project has finally been completed! The lucky guy took delivery from John just before Christmas and am delighted to say that all has gone well and Toby is over the moon. For those who have been following this blog over the years you […]

I know I’m always saying how close Toby’s car is from completion. I’ve probably been repeating myself for months and months. But as we all know with restorations like this anything can happen. A few weeks back I posted on Toby’s overheating issues, the last hurdle before delivery. Turns out the problem was not a […]

It’s been quite some time since I posted about Toby’s project. It was almost finished back in June but since then John had quite a few setbacks. But now the car is days away from being shipped to Toby. There’s just a small overheating problem to overcome. John has said the car was finished at […]

Firstly It’s been a few weeks now since I last posted on here but I’ve not been lazy rather I’ve just returned from Monaco where I was lucky enough to attend the 2011 Formula One Grand Prix. Without going on too much I will say It was the most amazing experience I’ve had in motorsport. […]

Toby’s Eleanor – Almost Back Together Again!

Saturday, December 19th, 2009

So we’ve had some setbacks towards the back half of this year which has pushed Toby’s and my cars back a bit, but seeing these new pictures just gets me excited. They are pretty self explanatory. Check them out after the jump.
Originally Toby was aiming to have the car all done around October or November […]

Toby’s Eleanor Now With Grills!

Friday, September 11th, 2009

Some good progress this week on Toby’s Project with the front end coming together quite nicely. John spent most of last weekend polishing the grills and we all agree they have come up nice.
The idea was to try and get the car on all four wheels but that didn’t happen as John had yet more […]

As some of you may know my car and Toby’s car are both being restored in a neighbouring state, over 10 hours by car away in the country. So as you would expect it’s not too often that I get to go down and visit John and see what kind of things he has on […]

Great progress this week for Toby’s car with the some nice confirmation pictures that show the paint laid down along with the main stripes and side stripes.
Last we heard was the car was prepped and ready for paint. But a few weeks have passed and she’s just about out of the paint booth and ready […]
