    Bruce Lester Sprite.

    Had not seen these photos before and being in Wanganui is Bruce any relation to Rob Lester, from down that way.

    1,bringing the thread to the fore
    2, borrowing the Sprite photo's for the Austin Healey thread.

    The Monthly " Photo News " seem to be quite significant in Regional Towns/Cities,
    Whangarei, and Nelson I know of and their were others, including Wanganui [ Whanganui ].

    One of the Sprite photo's.
