Default Thank you to MLU membership.

A restorers dream is to trip over a bounty of NOS parts for our beloved vehicles.

I have had such an experience and wish to share it and thank the Aussie players involved.

It goes like this;

- Mike Kelly attends a swap meet in a Gippsland town named Moe, Victoria on Sunday.
- Mike notices a couple of boxes of NOS Austin Champ parts.
- Mike Kelly as always thinking of others got a contact number and emails Richard Couttes-Smith with the information on the day of the Swap Meet.
- Richard emails me with the details that afternoon.
- I made contact with the seller that night and after a 500K return trip and 5 hours on the road on Monday I have the following.

A huge thank you to Mike and Richard and the MLU network; what a great group of people bought together by a common cause.

List of goodies.

Default What MLU is about

Hi Dave

Things like this is why I feel I have so many friends all over the world, while we will never meet face to face they are my friends.

The MLU community is something unique, that is enjoyable to be part of.

Cheers Phil

Dave,

That looks like a very good haul!

Happy to see MLU makes our world smaller. MLU proves there are only three degrees of integration, rather than six degrees of separation

Moreover, you have "paid it forward" (and I thank you again!), and this is your reward.

Regards,
Hanno

Default Parts

Hi Dave

Glad I could be of assistance to somebody in the Champ community. It was at the Warragul swap where I spotted those parts . The seller had little clue about what the parts were for but when I spied the Austin FV labels on the boxes I realised I had stumbled onto a very good deal.
