Smile Woe is me is now WOW is me!

In the space of time it took me to drink a mug of tea, offered to me on arrival, the gentleman wizard known by us as Trikey had completed the repair!
In this space of time he completely removed ALL the mass of bits that operate the electric window and replaced it with a new set of bits!
Despite my 86 years I have rarely come across such people as I have found in this incredible 75 Owners Club. I have been a member for quite some time and enjoy reading the stories and banter so eloquently expressed in the general forum. I just wished I too new more of you guys personally.
I had no idea Trikey was in Norfolk nor that several 75 Owners were there too, but had all gotten to know each other. I hope I get the opportunity to join in.
Kindest regards to all and particularly Trikey

A lovely story with a happy ending, would love it if you could post up a picture or two of the car in all its glory on the day. Don't let the car upstage the bride though!

Default Magical Day

Hi Guys,
The wedding was great, no rain and not too hot.
The Connie was just fine and looked as it should.
Thanks again everyone.

Thanks to Andy (Trikey) for making the time to repair the car, and make quite a few people very happy.
