35 Years of age today
Last year it was 35 years ago that 't Kreng rolled of the production line in Solihull. But today it is exactly 35 years ago that she was first registered and sold in the Netherlands. After she was written of in an accident, I acquired her as a low mileage (70.000 km) spares donor for my DHC on the 28th of September 1993. But as ever, plans have a habit of changing as time goes on. When I bought here she was still in her original guise, being painted in Pharaoh Gold metallic (GCF) with a Tan velour (AAM) interior. But 4 years later she was back on the road with a new Sapphire Blue (96) coat and an all black interior. And 20 years and many changes later she's still going strong!
