Pictures of my Haldane Mk2
« on: February 10, 2009, 09:36:08 AM »
Thought I would try to post a couple of pictures of my Haldane. One taken at the Knebworth Classic Car Show back in 2007.

Would love to hear from anybody with a Haldane in the Beds, Bucks and Herts area.

I'm in Beds. (actually, I am just in BED) as I type.

Don't have a Haldane and my Bulldog probably isn't up to the same standard, but maybe we can get a little convoy to go to the Newmarket Sunday lunch that is being threatened?

Hi to you all,

Some answers to your questions.
I brought the car back in the summer of 2007. It is one of the cars built at the Haldane factory in Scotland in 1994, and the owner drove it in a Novello Charity Wine run in 1994, and then little used until it raised it head in Norfolk in 2007, were I purchased it from after posting an interest on the old Pilgrim Car Club site.
The car has the Ford DOHC engine with Ford MT75 gearbox, it also rather interestingly came with a hardtop.

I have been to a few shows in it around the Beds, Bucks and Herts area, "Classics on the Common" in Harpenden 2007 & 2008. "Classics on the Green" in Croxely Green, nr Watford 2007, and Knebworth Classic Car Show 2007.

I would like to do some kit car shows but as these are usually further afield I need to do a few jobs on the car before I would feel confident to get there and back.

If the summer does come this year I do hope to get to some of the shows.

What do you mean don't let me near it I have seen my hard top in the garden some place it was snowed in at the weekend, as you say I have not seen the car before. if we all get to stoneleigh we could get a trophy that is for cars that have no running boards we could call it the no running board trophy
Nigel Barnicle Midlands Area rep,
