Introduction.
Welcome to this website. My name is Peter Aardoom, I live in the Netherlands and I own a Haldane HD-100 Mk I. In 2013 I did a partial restoration and conversion to LHD.

In 2014 I tried to find out the story behind the Haldane cars. Haldane did not stamp serialnumbers on its chassis. However, upon dismantling I found a number on the front crossmember of the chassis (between grille and radiator) in blue paint, number: 008. When I managed to get in contact with founder Brian Harrison I received a lot of photographs from him. Among these photographs there were pictures of chassisnumber 008. These pictures were taken when this car left the factory as a kit to be delivered to Alexander Anderson. From the pictures I could also conclude that specific damage on the radiator was in the exact same places as on my radiator and I could also trace back the original color of the car when I dismantled the hinges of the doors. My chassis had been galvanised and it is really in a remarkable good condition (no welding needed, wow!).

In 2015 the entire suspension has been restored with all new bearings, bushes, brake lines and brake components. On the rear axle the nut on the pinion shaft worked itself loose and locked up the rear wheels while doing 60+ kmph. Dangerous car but fun! In order to pass the APK (MOT) the wire wheels had to go because the central spinners were too wide for the bodywork.

In January 2017 Bryan Johnson, who owns a "Haldane" 100S with an unusual chassis, informed me he had a call from Bob Adams (Bobs Affordable Classics). Bob Adams knew who built his car! It was not Haldane... I called Bob and he gave me the number of Pete Farriesof PCF Motors. Pete made the moulds for a Healey 100/4 replica, the moulds for a Healey 100s replica and built a number of cars. In December 1986 Pete offered the moulds and a body for sale (see "Articles") and eventually sold to Haldane. The origin of Haldane was researched extensively by me and now finally a break through. Pete Farries sent me a number of photographs and this will be the basis for another "History" section. Click here.
