Good to see that it has gone to a good home, just keep Steve away from it on Sunday night Grin

Look forward to seeing it in all it's glory on BN, if it is ready for The Brethren trip this year.

Fab news, well done guys.

I don't know about others but if you fancied having a restoration fund I'd put a few quid in.  It truly is a piece of history and I imagine the restoration is going to eat some pennies...

which engine does she (the Popemobile of course, Polish princess power plants are less readily assessed, I may need to do some research there!) have, is it the diesel or the wonderful all singing Bedford petrol engine (where the hell did I put that spare dizzy??)

[/quote]
She is running a 6 pot 3.0 petrol with what appears to be a Zenith Carb. She runs beautifully and is so clean in the engine bay its unreal. I have never seen one that tidy!!
I will post pics soon.

Great news Rex and Russ.

I'm glad to see the old girl's Le Mans history will live on and she didn't end up as a hen night party bus.

Just what do you think it'll be used for the other 51 weeks of the year?

As she will be living with me then a weekly sunday outing will be in order plus other missions that are to be disclosed at a later date. She wont sit on her own, unloved etc. We have plans for her!! Grin Grin Grin

Well, 2 of the 51 weeks will be getting to Le Mans and back in good, leisurely fashion I would think.  Great news, look forward to seeing it on BN.  To preserve the lineage of history, I should imagine a blend of the RAF meets the Popemobile meets the Brethren a la Black Sabbath would be quite appropriate.....

I do hope this spurs Mr Z into similar action - the combination of this and the Commer together at Le Mans should be beyond compare...

Rex and Rus,

Congratulations.

Now, part of the Popemobile's history is the Red Dragon look you.

I hope you intend to keep the painted dragon.

Follow me, I'm right behind you, now.

At my age, it takes me all night to do what I used to do all night!!!!!!!!!!!
Then, growing old is compulsary, but growing up is just optional.

Do you think it would go down well at Nurburgring 24hrs?

Fantastic News!!!  Well done guys!!

Look forward to seeing her at Le Mans again!

(On that note, will she be on BN or will a special trackside viewing spot be procured for her?)

[/quote] I imagine she would but thats one hell of a fuel bill.... another year perhaps.... when we have done a Mad Max style tanker robbery.... obviously not using the Popemobile as that would look rather silly!  Grin

The Brethren et al,
                        Did the purchase of the Popemobile include the Flag pole? And more importantly did it include the Canadian Maple Leaf and Stars & Stripes (Flags) which have flown high and proud on MB since 2001? Support for Leftie on the continued presence of teh Dragon too. The attendace board should also be retained to preserve the history. wether Rusty should be required to wear the pope hat i leave for others to decide Cool
 Canada Phil donated the Maple Leaf
 Pidge donated the Stars & Stripes
 for those coming to Sebring I can introduce you to Pidgeon.
