Going Minissima

In came an update from Bruce Rolland. He has been working hard on the restoration of his newly acquired car, an American spec Elswick Envoy which he bought at the end of last year (story here). Bruce now sent a few images as the car is coming back to life. He wrote: "It's just out of paint. Look at the colors, they are the same as the Corgi 288 Minissima colors. I have been putting the little guy back together all week. It will be stunning after all is complete." That's a groovy idea indeed, and it surprises me no-one ever thought of this colour scheme before. Well done!

American spec Elswick Envoy has to be rare. It is given a full restoration treatment now
