   Unfortunately as "The Gentleman's Express Club" AC 428 Register has always been a temporary one and my good lady's patience is now being strained to record highs, regrettably I won't be able to spare the time to continue updating and maintaining it all for very much longer. So if anyone would like to refer to any of the pics. or period articles currently archived in Photobucket well beforehand, say for cross-reference purposes with the Register, please drop me an e-mail for a confidential password to view. For ID and copyright reasons only could you also include your usual Forum name and Forum registered address as well.

   Thanks and enjoy - 270 entries so far ! [8D]

As of the 1st February 2010 due to increasing family commitments, I won't unfortunately have the time any longer to spend on "The AC Frua 428 Register and Archive" so it is now closed permanently.
   
   Been good fun ! [:)]

Sorry to read your note .  This page was so informative and invaluable , shame to lose it when it is at its current stage and when so much hard work has been spent creating such an informative document.
   
   Is there not another expert in the club out there who would consider taking it over ?
   
   Maybe a note in ACtion ?
   
   I am sure that many prople do not know of this site and of its content.
   
   Regards

Hi Classicus,
   
   I know you said a couple of years ago that you were thinking of stopping your 428 Register. As you know, as Registrar I keep the ACOC 428 Frua Register, but it is mostly hard copy records of the history of the 428s over the years. I have managed to help you identify some cars on your register in the past, and I certainly checked the last publication of the ACOC Register against yours, in case I had missed anything obvious.
   You have undoubtedly produced a work of art and it would be a real shame if it went to waste. I wonder if there is some way we could combine the two registers to make an all singing and dancing ACOC Register? There is obviously confidential information on file which could not be published because of the wishes of the owners or contributors, but the nett result could be of interest to the membership.I presume pressures and time constraints preclude you from taking on the job, but there may be someone out there!
   Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any thoughts about it. All the best, Andy.
