How many Seagulls have you got?

Post by livewire »

Hi all,

John told me the other day to be carefull as once you have at least two gulls they breed.

Now i'm about to get a third, possibility of a forth this week.

So it got me thinking how many do you lot own?

Perhaps counselling is required? I got one in my workshop to fix a seized gearbox and overhaul for a friend, I have now got the bug and own 4 of my own and SOS is my home page :twisted:

8 not counting parts motors up until July 2010, the bad news is the 14 of other brands that have accumulated since then. Time to cull the herd. Running out of space.

You missed the buttons that say :

'Loads More than Current Primary Woman thinks',

and of course 'Thank God she doesn't know about the other shed'

Ah just got my 3rd today, many thanks to a fellow forum member. Although the misses may not thank him.

I enjoy a tinker in the garage and the satisfaction of saving and old british engine.

To think less than 3 months ago i got my first seagull, now i would like to consider myself in the crusade to save'em. Calling on other forum members for advice when required.

You have about one of the mast eclectic collection of motors, not just the seagulls.
Is the 5/32hp the little glow engine.

You start to realise how sick you are when your first thought when answering this survey is "that it needs more boxes for higher numbers"!

I could have ticked the last box just counting QUB's.

Out of mine my favourites is a 1950 FV. Still runs, still pumps water, still in the very tatty condition in which it arrived.

But I keep changing my mind...
