Hi All, I still have the Boyd Pistonola that triggered that exchange.
No one wanted it back then, unless I gave it to them for scrapping!
It is now located in Canada, if anyone wants to view it.
I would still sell it for a modest sum to someone who genuinely wanted
to restore it, as I feel (a) it is in too good a state to scrap and
(b) I doubt if we shall ever get around to restoring it ourselves.
Best wishes to all.
