Beautiful car. I hope everybody who had a hand in restoring and rescuing her gets a chance to see the completed project (even those who are aren't members now). If you ever want her to do a tour of northern ireland I'm available as a foster mum

Well done everybody !

Interesting read, and the car looks not bad compared to what was started with.

Amazing what can be done when you pour many thousands of pounds into an old wreck, and it goes to show anything can be brought back from the brink.

Nice job

Brian

Is this the white OVP that was at the NEC? Is she still owned by the club? The updates on the other thread are old (or my phone isn't scrolling lol)

Yes, itís the one at the NEC. The thread dates back to the time we first acquired the car, and has been added to by me over the past week to bring it up to date

The car is an asset of the club.

OVP looked beautiful under the lights at the NEC and it's great to see the little touches that hark back to the cars previous working life. The paint shop did a first rate job and she's a real credit to the club.

If the chance arises, it would be great to give her a full detail sometime in the spring .

Cool

I got to drive OVP at the NEC, only moved her into her parked position on the stand. But what a joy to drive her.

Thumbs up

Fantastic read very interesting history with its many T.V. appearances all the way through to restoring back to former glory and being at the NEC 2018.
Well done to all those involved past and present brilliant work.
