Bet you felt like the dogs danglies driving that, what a car back then for a young lad

I was 21 at the time ( the car pics are from 1975). Bought it for £850, sold it 2 years later for the same money when I couldn't afford a new set of tyres to pass the MOT. If only I'd known then that it was going to become a classic................

So today I am going to be making Halloween cakes with my youngest. May  post the journey on another thread. 

journey will start with trips to get him a chefs outfit and required ingredients. 



There is a reason behind the journey post, my youngest has special needs(wouldn’t change him for the world) last week his great grandad and grandma (wife’s side) got taken into a care home for review, sadly Great Grandma passed only after a few days in there and then Wednesday the Great Grandad was rushed into hospital, he is still fighting and with us so the cooking is a distraction for us. Also fun

Back to more familiar territory for me today with this steel-cased Roamer running on a 17j ETA 2390, my only one of several examples of the brand which doesn’t have an MST movement.

It wears slim on the wrist, but has a decent amount of heft to it.

1978 King Seiko 5853 again. 2 things I like about this most. 1 the typical 70s no fuss branding on the dial. More like the name plate on a 1974 Tower Block in Gateshead than the fancy affair you get now on Grand Seiko etc. And 2 the the manual control on the stepper motor see link below.

You appear to have lasted longer than the TR6 Rog, sadly no longer listed on DVLA's database:(
