Not sure if this belongs here or in the thread about my SDL.... but anyway!

When I got my 'Norm' there was a carrier bag full of old magazine pages/cuttings that the former owner had obviously kept, along with some old MOT/tax disc bits etc

I'm in the process of scanning all of this and uploading to the mighty Google - here's a link to what I've got done so far....

This is probably half of the total documents I have for Norm - I'll keep plodding away at it so if it piques your interest then do check back :-)
1965 SDL. 1 prev keeper & matching numbers :D
