Hi

I have today travelled with my good friend Bert to Bath to collect my new buggy, a 1961 Beaujangle Can Am.

The vendor David who has previously owned one of the first GP's seen in the UK back in the late 60's, has owned this vehicle since the early 80's.  Due to a new direction in his life,  David made the difficult decision to sell this very rare vehicle.

I would like to thank you David for your kind hospitality and I am looking forward to starting the restoration.

Now, wheres those spanners......

Congratulations on the imminent birth of your new buggy. Hope the labour pains aren't as extreme as some on this forum.

Luckily the car had to go down the hill to the trailer, not up!
