    It wasn't until I wrote this series that I realised how much I missed my collection of sold Alternators and just how amazing they all looked displayed together...and also how rare some of them were.

    Also reminded me of some unseen artwork I had been shown for an Alternator that never got the bubble box treatment but was considered for re-release !

    All the best
