Happy New Year & Welcome to the new look website

Tuesday, December 31st, 2013

Hello one and all,

As I said in the title Happy New Year and hopefully the new look website should help freshen up the DOC for 2014.

I am still working on some parts and always welcome comments and things to add.

Sorry – well to genuine users

Saturday, February 16th, 2013

Just like to say a quick sorry to any genuine users of the blog, I have now decided to impose a check before a new account is created.

Hopefully this should stop the non-dutton interested from posting adverts.

Thanks for your patience.

My latest Dutton

Monday, February 11th, 2013

Hello All,

As webmaster I thought it was about time to contribute again, this is my latest Dutton, my Phaeton. I have done a couple of things to this before taking on the road and neither of them really required. First was to fit a removable Steering Wheel (so I can get my large backside in the seat) and the second and a little more tricky was fitting an immobiliser so the car is now keyless with a push button starter.

Let me know what you think by leaving your comments?
