Her STORY by Tony Goddard

In 2001 after the death of my wife Rosemary and all the probate legalities were completed. I received a sum of money from a TESSA. On presenting the cheque at the Building Society, the cashier said “This is quite a lot of money, we have some special accounts it could go into”. However. I didn’t take up any investment, but deposited it into my current account. A few days later, I was driving my Taxi and engaged in conversation with a customer. On route to his house we saw an old car coming out of a side turning and this prompted further conversation about old cars. The gentleman then told me about his old Jaguar, which was up for sale. When we reached his destination, he insisted on showing off his old car, which was in the garage. When he opened the garage door, all that could be seen was a shrouded shape. He insisted on removing the cover to reveal a beautiful car!

After about a week, I decided to enquire to see if the car had been sold. On discovering that it had not, I arrange to have a test drive. Encouraged by my son, I later made an offer which was acceptable to the owner and initially garaged it at various addresses in Bexhill and St Leonard’s

Having very happily re-married in October 2002, my wife, Veronica and I enjoy taking “Jacky” to Bexhill 100 Club events and many charitable events as well as using her for our personal pleasure. It is certainly a lovely car to drive and has brought us into contact with many like-minded people.
