And I'm still rolling along

We brought the Traveller home tonight on a towing dolly borrowed from a friend who's into classic Merc's. That proved to be a bit of an adventure in itself, particularly getting it back off the dolly without a winch, foot-brakes, or a running engine (I tried hand-cranking it in reverse but I think the clutch was slipping because it wouldn't move). We eventually managed it with the aid of a jack, a couple of bricks, and some lateral thinking.

I've decided to call her Fenchurch. The ZZ9 bods on my friends' list should get the reference.
