Today please welcome Terry and Rosiland McKenzie, the new owners of Y 4086 to Ys on Parade.

Now a sceptical person might say we planned this, but please believe me when we say we did not. All our submissions for the Monthly Pictures are normally put up in strict rotation of the order in which they were submitted. This entry was the next naturally occurring entry, and is also co-incidentally Y 4086 from back when it belonged to Leigh Wallace. So herewith, please enjoy the Picture of the Month.

The Reprinted Article comes from British Car magazine, February 1992.
