Meet Chattie’s brilliant engineer

Chattie’s engineer, Crispin Thetford, of Thetford Motor Engineering, near Malvern, will be with Chattie and me at Brightwell’s on the viewing day for the Spring classic vehicle auction, Tuesday 3rd March. He is extremely knowledgeable about vintage and classic vehicles and from my point of view it will be fantastic to have him on hand so that he can field all the technical questions that are bound to be asked.  Pin has been working on Chattie over the past few months, to prepare her for the tour ahead, so he knows her – literally – inside and out.

If you are planning to be there, do come over and say hello to one or other of us.  In Pin’s words, Chattie is now driving as she should; he’s the one who knows what lies behind that statement; I’m the one who will soon be finding out how great a driving experience that will give me over the next six months.

I am delighted to announce that Brightwells Classic Vehicles are generously supporting the Where They Served tour of UK wartime airfields, in aid of the RAF Benevolent Fund.

I bought ‘Chattie’, the 1935 Singer Le Mans sports car, from a Brightwells classic and vintage vehicle auction last March and Chattie will be on show at this year’s auction on 3rd and 4th March (viewing and sale days). If you are going to be there, please come and say hello and find out about my fundraising tour.
