By the by, it appears I forgot to "sign" ...

Good afternoon all!
 
  Jumping into the fray, I'm the fellow that actually purchased the  wood 
steering wheel.  While I don't believe for a minute that it's from a  genuine 
"works" vehicle, or that it has any historic significance, it appeared  to 
be an attractive steering wheel that will fit my 1953 Mark I Alpine.   I 
realize that it is not the "correct" wheel for the car, but note that it  will 
replace a cracked and damaged existing wheel (which is also not the  correct 
wheel!), and while it was expensive, I was looking at spending  the same or 
more for a replacement.  Am I happy?  I'll let all know  once I see it in 
person on receipt of the wheel!
 
  I've been replacing incorrect parts on my Sunbeam for the past  several 
months (down to correcting the ash tray inside), and the  steering wheel will 
be the only "incorrect" bit when I am done.  Most of  the parts have been 
obtained either through Bamforth's, or on e-Bay,  mostly from the UK.  The 
only parts that I now need are the rear license  plate assembly chrome piece 
and the appropriate "Sunbeam" lens.  If there  is a subscriber that can help 
me with these bits, I would certainly appreciate  it!  (I've made this 
appeal before!)
 
  Once completed, I'll start showing the vehicle in shows and events  here 
in southeast Florida, in the States.  The car has been transformed  from a 
little used stored vehicle, to one that is (and will continue to be)  
frequently used - - and living in Florida, it will be used year round!   Isn't that 
what we're trying to accomplish?
 
  Having said that, I appreciate seeing all of the banter back and  forth 
among the subscribers, and look forward to meeting anybody that wanders  into 
our little part of the world!  I've learned much from the STAR site,  and 
hope to be a productive participant for a long time to come!
 
  Thanks in advance to anybody who comes up with a source for the  rear 
license plate chrome!
 
Thank you all and cheers!

It  would be interesting to know, if the buyer subscribes tot his list, if 
he  
is happy with his purchase.
If the price is right and the quality is  good I don't care if he claims 
it's 
been to the moon and back.
