The museum has a fantastic display of all three marques (and other cars), and is sited at the old factory and showroom. The showroom is particularly interesting, it has been restored to it’s former art deco glory. The entrance fee is very low and the whole thing is maintained by enthusiasts.
The original offices of E.L.Cord and the design offices have been restored.
Whilst we were there we watched the Ben Stiller film “Tropic Thunder” which was really funny.
Strange thing was there were only four people in the cinema including us, during the show the weather was so bad there was a power cut. The reason it was so quiet was that the cinema had only been open for a few days. We stayed at an any excellent Hampton Inn (also brand new) and ate at a Buffalo Wild Wings (very frendly, good food, again brand new) All three were next to each other on a new development just outsise Auburn.
Finished sorting out the tiny bit of surface rust under the front footwell carpets.
Only reason it was actually there was that the floor grommets has been pushed through into the car. These were refitted and sealed with silicon sealer, the floor treated with Kurust and a little matt black paint appled to seal it all up.
Made some temporary repairs to the seats and had a go at putting the carpet in a little more tidily.
The kick panels however are not right for the car, fitted them in temporarily until we can either make or buy some replacements.
As you can see the seats are still leaking foam, once again another job for after the MOT.
My Dad popped up and supervised proceedings:-)
We took her on a run of about 25 miles, performance was very good.
Small oil leak from the rocker cover gasket, needs sorting after the pre-MOT.
