HB News 6

Edition 6

A teeth chattering g'day to all our newsletter readers.

Andrea and I are back from the warm and humid climes of Asia!  Called into the shop on the way back from the airport still wearing our shorts and thongs - just a little optimistic!

You may recall from the previous newsletter we had a Lambretta 150 Id motor scooter from the 1950's for a very short time.  If you want to have a look at it in person, it now resides at Cafe Cavallino in Lygon St, Carlton.  The cafe has a Formula 1 theme, so there is plenty to look at, as well as a traditional, family based Italian menu to peruse and enjoy!

The other Motor Scooter is being worked on.  I can reveal that is a Triumph.  We are planning to have it on display at Motorclassica 2012 at the Melbourne Exhibition Building, Carlton, in October.  We have been taking a stall there for several years and bring up an eclectic selection of items for display and sale - mostly automobile related, but we do sneak in some other items that may also be of interest, or just look good!  Of course, there is a display of over 100 classic automobiles and motorcycles to look at as well.

Given we're on a a bit of an automobilia theme this newsletter, some of you may have been waiting for a subscriber special that is garagenalia related.  Here's a real rarity that has just come in - an Atlantic Union Embossed Oil Bottle with Castrol Top

This is in the shop for $375.  Ask for the subscriber special price of $310.  That price stops when the next newsletter comes out.

See you soon, either on-line or in person.

Cheers,

Pete and Andrea
