1 August 2018

Ian Prior is busy trawling through some "new" records in Victoria, Australaia and has found several new cars that we have now been able to add into the database bringing the total of cars in the database to 3,420 which is 41.02% of total production ... and there are probably more to come from that as his research progresses! Thank you Ian.

Today, please welcome Peter Mahon with Y 6640 in the Ys on Parade.

Having just returned from a trip to Victoria, British Columbia, Canada this month's Picture of the Month is provided by the webmaster. It is really great to visit with our International Representatives whenever I can and it was great fun catching up with Frank after so many years.
