Nita and I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Please find enclosed the Christmas card we made for this year.
We are standing here in front of our car on Regent Street during the Veteran Car Motor Show on November 5th. The day before the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run that we were going to do in our own car next day. This Motor show displayed a selection of about hundred cars from the total of about four hundred and thirty participants. We had arranged to show the three participating White cars next to eachother. Next morning was early rising in preparation for a start before eight o’clock. We left Hyde Park via the Wellington Monumnet past Buckingham Palace and St. James Park to Westminster Bridge along “Big Ben”. In South London traffic got denser and the car developed a leak we were lucky to be able to mend. But we lost a lot of time and the remaining run we were traveling in front of the last RAC road patrol van who had his flashing lights on to warn the other traffic. To our relief we made it to the destination on Madeira Drive in Brighton just before the time limit.
Our best wishes for the New Year
Nita en Arnoud Carp
