Glad I found you all

Post #1 by Mark.Rive » Sat Oct 30, 2010 8:53 pm

Hi Everyone,

I've been browsing the web and found this site, what a mass of usefull info. When I was a lad (a long time ago) I spent all my time with my uncle, used to ride along in an old Thames trader truck with him. Then he became JCB digger driver. He started in a 3C, then moved to 3Dmk2, then the 3D with opening front bucket, then came the 6D, and finally he used the largest JCB we saw on the island, a 7B. I decided I would like to restore and old 3D Mk2 a while back, but as yet havent found one. The wife's not too keen, because I've done cars and bikes before but a JCB is going to be a long affair! Anyway thanks for allowing me to join the site, I'm afraid at this point I have no info of any value to add. But I'm going to enjoy reading the information already here. Thanks again. Mark

Hi Mark,

Welcome to CMN :thumbup:

You say you are on "The Island" would that be the Isle of Wight by any chance ?

Hi Nick, No. I'm down in Guernsey, Channel Islands. Hence the problem in finding a 3D!
