Greetings from Hampshire

Post by Finchyman » Sat Apr 27, 2019 11:27 am

Hi everyone, I am the proud owner of a black/ mink 1977 Princess HLS. I have had it for almost ten years but it has remained hidden and unused as my children and life have taken all my energy and patience! However I am now getting it back on the road with a full service and sorting out the sagging suspension. Will post some photos.

It's nice to see the car coming back out of hibernation, Ian. I was very fond of that car when John Capon owned it but it must be 13 years ago I last saw it.

Welcome to the forum from a fellow Hampshire hog. I'm not normally keen on black cars but I think the Princess (& Ambassador come to that) look absolutely stunning in black.

Welcome indeed. I look forward to seeing your tidy wedge at some time as I, too, am a Hampshire Hog...

Thank you everyone for the welcome. The photo looks great, it has lost its BL mud flaps since then - are there any out there for sale?
Hopefully it will be up and running soon!
