I was looking for an image of a Dandy that I saw in an add.
Google images is often influenced by what we post or by eBay adds but what about the images from other sources.
So many things relating to Dandys are the same repetitive questions.
Not to make light though, that's what's important if your looking to buy a Dandy or your Dandy doesn't work.
What about all the other people who post Images of Dandys though.
What are they doing?
Posted in general chat as most of the stuff will have little to do with Dandys.

Ok, one of you lot pestered me into joining, so here i am. Yes thats my dandy doing the drag racing circuit for the past 4 years. It's seen better days really but ripe for someone to restore as it's a real old model and still perfectly usable.
Oh and as it happens it's for sale on ebay as it's no longer required.

Sell up your Dandy. I see it's without lights it's on a trailer board.

Tell us summat wonderful about the suspension or whatever else is wonderful?

Hopefully you being an engineering type some of the bad stuff will be far better than the miserable mess that non engineering types posess.

Never had my hopes on a newer dandy. I wouldn't have hesitated to restore this one if i was going to keep it. Part of the problem was loosing our garaged storage place for it. But anyway I've now converted a van into race HQ.

It needs a little welding on one of the slide out leg supports, i've done one side but now anthers starting to come away. If i were keeping it I'd strip it completely and replace much of the lower woodwork and have the chassis blasted and powdercoated. See if i could make it last another 40 years!

Yeah it's on a trailer board with a wire under the chassis.

Good things to say? well... dunno about suspension, i just tow it and forget it's there half the time!
And theres something just incredibly likeable about it Smile
