Hi I found Joes site by chance and would like to add the picture was taken on a lane which ran along the river by Denton island. Now it is part of the Newhaven bypass. The car is a Ford V8. As a old Newhavener. Liked Joes talk about the Swinging 60s which rings true we was allways hard up but £1.50 would buy petrol for the bike packet of Ciggs and coffee money for the juke box great times wish I could turned the clock back of . I think I knew Joe in the 60s a crowd of us used to met at the Coffee House in Lewes on our bikes
