Question A.C. James, Pauton, Bristol. still trading??

Mr. James used to supply parts for vintage car radios, including the Solid State Vibrators made by Antique Automobile Radio, Inc. of Florida www.radiosforoldcars.com but trying to access his website results in a 404 Not Found error.

I've sent an email to radios@freeserve.co.uk AFAIK this is his email address, but would like to know if he is still trading

It didnt work when I clicked the link but worked fine when I typed it in.

Is this Mr James's web site or his supplier?

Cheers

That site is the American Automobile Company of Florida, Mike. They list AC James as their UK agents, and, in fact, in the past I've bought thimgs, including solid state vibrators, from him. I'll await his reply to my enquiry and report back. May also try Vintage Wireless Co. in Sale (Alan Marchant)

The link worked for me and clicking on Dealer Locator and following the relevant links led me to a list which included Mr James of Paulton. The Freeserve website listed didn't work and I think Freeserve may be defunct so the email address probably won't either. However his phone number and address are there.

Chris

Edit: Apparently Freeserve email addresses will work until the end of May

Although I now use my BT email, my freeserve email is still functioning, with a warning at log-on that it is closing on 31st May.
