Yesterday I was pleased to be able to loan the Tassie Devil to Peter and Judi fot their 50th wedding anniversary. Turns out they met through the Brisbane Bellett Club over 50 years ago, Judi being the only female member at the time. They had both bought new Bellett sedans in 1964 and '65 and used them and another Bellett as their wedding cars in 1968.

Peter has shared a lot of advice and parts over the years, so I was only too pleased to let them take the GT to the church 50 years later which they thoroughly enjoyed.
