Hello Mac, |
We have our own ‘Fred Dibnah’ in the guise of Alan La Ruste.
Alan comes across as a great character and a canny fella, and I can just see him and his mates in Alan’s garage, working hard on a vehicle, tools passing back and forth while sharing some ‘canny banter’.
Then, a few months later, just like Fred, when the job is nearly done and everything is working according to plan, excitement fills the air… it’s time to turn up the tune on the wireless and for everyone to sing along with the song. Then, the vehicle is taken outside into the open air to be viewed in all its glory… what a beauty! Listen to that engine! Runs like a dream.
I've seen some of images of Alan's incredible vehicle transformations on this message board, and must say what a talent man he is. Thank you for sharing, Alan.
Alan has now given up fixing vehicles, and I miss the funny stories that he used to share with us… though, they’re on the Archives to be viewed any time we choose.
