PostSubject: A MASSIVE THANK YOU!   Tue Apr 30, 2013 6:25 am

Hi guys.

Sorry I haven't logged in for a week or two, been a busy and exciting time for me.

Finally and after six years in the making, my 57/58 Plymouth Belvedere "Christine" is now parked safely in my garage.

Donnie Taylor from Tennessee started building her from a 57 Belvedere around 2007, early on in her build he was injured and she was burnt out when his workshop burned down, photos of that "episode" are elsewhere on the forum.



The original car started out as a 57 Belvedere before the fire, supplied by BigM in California.

Thanks again John Fowlie for supplying the great rust free car and for all your subsequent help and advice since, hopefully you won't mind me "hounding" you again in the future mate?.



Donnie managed to salvage her but the workload he had and some more cars he took on was too much and as a result I knew my Plymouth would be many more years in the making, I couldn't wait that long, I'm getting too old.

Donnie still has people that have cars with him, progress is very slow and they are understandably frustrated but Donnie deserves recognition and thanks from me, for all the hours he put into my car.





However, I also owe everything to my guardian Angel Clive Reeve.

Clive's an FL. moderator and a good "bloke".



Without him I'd have been b******d.

Clive helped me collect my car last year, offering advice every step of the way as I shipped her over to England and has been working on her since last summer to ensure she's safe for me to drive my young family around in.



He never took a dime for all the hours of work he put in for me, I hope we can get our cars together as often as possible, UK gas prices allowing.







I need to thank everyone from both Christine clubs for all the parts, advice and assistance given over the past 6 years.

I'm now living my life's dream.




As far as I know there are no 2 door HT Plymouths from 1958 in the UK at this present time (on the road).



Dean Kendal (ChristineUK) has recently moved to my Village, he has his 58 Silver Special and is also building a Christine Clone, as far as I know, in the near future Tiptree in South East England will house the only two cars of their kind in the UK.





Thanks again everyone:







Lee Day.
London.
England.

Congrats on finally getting her home. It has to be a great feeling. I saw most of her pic's including when she was burnt in the fire. She is a great looking car and I hope you and your family enjoy every minute with her.

Congratulations Lee...So happy for you. The last 6 years has had to be quite a roller coaster ride. I pray that you will now have many enjoyable years with your beautiful Christine. Please keep us posted of your enjoyment with her as much as possible.
