Those who know my father will not be in the least bit surprised to learn he's developed a special name for 270 KTA...
'Oddbod Junior' is, of course, the smiling but clumsy monster from Carry of Screaming, who wreaks havoc wherever he goes. His haplessness is a source of great irritation to his owner, but generally ends up endearing him to everyone watching at home. Remind you of anything?
This weekend - the three day marathon to pull together the work of the last few weeks - my very own Oddbod Junior has done all he can to resist going back together. But, like his namesake, he's ultimately failed in his attempt to cause mischief.
After 5 months, 1 week and 3 days, 270 KTA is now back on the road - with a new clutch, bearings, rebuilt gearbox and linkage. The result is excellent.
I'll tell you all about it over the next few days - after some sleep.
