‘It was the night before Christmas…’
…when we received the phone call from Ian at Schumacher Cargo Logistics to confirm the arrival of our 1969 Pontiac Firebird into Felixstowe docks.
She had been at sea for a number of weeks taking the trip over from Canada but a couple of days prior to the phone call we were expecting the ship to be arriving. Once the containers had been offloaded and signed in we were able to collect the car.
She fired up first time and if it wasn’t for the fact that the nearside rear tyre was completely flat we would have driven her back from the docks to our Pettistree workshops. Instead we loaded up the trailer and took a de-tour to the local garage to get some air.
It was then we were able give her a good run out on the A14 and A12.
