There will be 8 Imps of sorts when they all arrive, not all mines I hasten to add.

Its close by the old Rootes factory at Linwood. Offically open two three weeks ago and then just about poo'd myself when I paid the first months rent. But filling up nicely now. Possibly one or two more cars and that will be it for the time being. There will be 8 Imps, a V olvo Amazon, MK1 Golf, MX5 and possibly two more.

If you're in the area give me a shout. I work away from home Monday to Friday but around and about most weekends.

And usually up for the Linwood Imp Club meetings. Are you coming to our Christmas bash? If so, could show you round then if I can get up the road from the deepest Cumbria.

Re: Imporium 2 available

Post by Macrootes » Sat Sep 24, 2016 10:03 am

Imporium 2 now available for storage. I have taken on a second storage room, smaller than the first one. Imporium 2 should take circa 8/9 Imps. Will move all the Imps into the one room (will make a cracking picture) and the remainder of the cars will be left in the first unit. If any Glasgow Imp owners (or further afield) are looking for storage, give me a shout. Should be up and running for November. Have 5 places taken already with some more space available. Get in touch if you are looking and see if we an accommodate you.
