JoLon Imp is “on the road again!”

July 3, 2014

 

a very emotional time and exciting at the same time to know that my old faithful will soon be re-united with us here in South Africa.

the following is a mial from james Spencer in the UK who was the driving force behind getting the Imp seaborne and on its way home. Thanks James!

the following is a very happy mail i received from him a few short hours ago.

 

Hi Terence,

Good to talk to you this morning and I can now report that The JoLon Imp has been safely delivered to Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics at Southampton and will be shipped on Saturday 5th July.

I left the car in a parking area amongst many new Jaguar, Range Rover and Rolls Royce, so it is in good company.  I attach a photo of it as I left and one of it leaving Nick Harrisons store in Banbury.

I am pleased to have been able to help in the return of your wonderful little car to its homeland, what is the saying, OLD IMPS NEVER DIE THEY JUST GET FASTER.

Please let me know when the car is safely returned to you.

I am sure we will speak again.

Regards,

James Spencer.
