Finally, we're owners of a Portafold

In 2014, we saw our first Portafold at Lathalmond Car Show. The lovely couple, Allan and Sandy, had towed it with their Allegro Estate. I not only loved the Allegro Estate, but the Portafold too. The very kind couple let us have a seat in the Portafold and we were hooked. We've bumped into each other at car shows since and kept in touch.

Just 2 weeks ago, Allan called me to say a Portafold was up for sale on this forum. Whilst we looked at the latest advert that appeared, a different one caught our eye. We got in touch with a lovely guy called Geoff who advertised his 1971 Portafold. A 9 hour road trip to view and bring back on Sunday, as we are now the proud owners of a Portafold. Geoff and his father used to go camping and fishing with it. It was very well maintained and in great condition. Both guys were genuinely life's good guys but sadly due to ailing health had to give this up.

Geoff was happy it was coming to enthusiasts and Allan and Sandy were pleased too. So, we intend to use "make it ours" and use the Portafold for nights away at car shows and other odd weekends.

We are in Glenrothes, Fife and Allan and Sandy are in Musselburgh, Edinburgh.

I've tried to add photos but clearly I'm doing something wrong, so I will try to add photos tonight :D
