    In my late father's papers we kept we have the invoice from the dealer, Arthur Wheeler of Epsom in Surrey, where my dad bought his 1951 Triumph 6T.

    With the optional dual seat it came to a little over 184. He bought this whilst serving in the post war Royal Navy.

    Whoa, this one just slid right under the radar!

    So are you saying she got married and you did not (many men live just that way)? You won her after the marriage you were the best man for failed? Maybe it was her marriage after your divorce from her?

    That old girl has been married to me now for 44 years. I was a over the road truck driver. So she says I was gone for over 40 of those years. But I am around to tease her full time now. She does not look like she did 44 years ago. But I have not changed a bit.
