Curved ball
« on: 10 February 2021, 02:09:23 pm »
Looks like I've been thrown a curved ball by a cousin, in the form of a family photo of my grandfather's car. I think I've identified it as a Renault GS (might be an NN) from the early 1920s, Mam reckons the photo dates from 1929. It shows my grandfather in the drivers seat, a mechanic friend in the passenger seat, my grandmother and uncle drivers side rear, and my mother passenger side rear.

Need to get on with the Morgan so I can advance this one to the second build, and hopefully finish it while Mam's still around. It's a prime candidate for the Stevenson build method, as it's mainly flat panels.

Edit: After more research it seems it's more likely to be a KJ or NN model.

I really love it when there is a connection to the inspiration through family. Do the Renault, the body on the Morgan can wait IMHO

I hear you Rhys, I will do the Renault, but I've left projects part done too many times before, and they've never got finished, so the Morgan has to be done first.
