Robson. This has now been added to the Book
Review page with full ISBN information.

Sorry for the the long break - I am currently in hospital with 14% burns but
recovering well thank you. Thank you also to the many of you who have
flooded the hospital's Contact a Patient page - it has been a geographically
interesting thing to look at there all the emails have been sent from!
One email which came in today was fro Lisa Lankes - owner of the Dutch Yellow YB
we have had on Interesting Ys for a few months. So please welcome Lisa
Lankes and YB 0291 to
Ys on Parade. We look forward to more entertaining stories from the "Dynmaic
Dutch Dou" in due course.
Also, to put the world to rights the English translation of the German article
from November 1996 has been released to
4 September 2005
In the August 2005 edition of Classic and Sportscar Magazine there was an
interesting comment about a YB chassis that had been shortened to TD length -
the usual story, but that the bits which had been taken out had been kept with
the chassis. The chassis and bits had now been sold from Essex UK to East
Yorkshire UK and that the buyer was intending to open the chassis back up and
reinsert the bits to make a YB Special after having been off the road for 40
years! An interesting reversal of the normal history - if the buyer reads
this, may be we will be contacted with further details and another YB will rise
again. We all wish the buyer well in this admirable venture. The
same article also referred to the former Dick Jacobs car which we reported on as
seen at Silverstone 2005.
