A pensioner who has sold beloved classic car due to his failing eyesight is spending the proceeds on laser treatment to restore his vision so he can drive again.
Derrick Schofield bought the Triumph TR4 brand new in 1962 because it could fit his large baritone saxophone in the boot.
The musician and self-confessed ladies' man said the convertible motor used to impress the girls so much that he nicknamed it the 'Crumpet Catcher'.
After six decades of happy motoring in it the 87-year-old has had to sell his pride and joy as he can no longer drive due to his poor eyesight.
The Triumph went under the hammer for £16,000 and Derrick said he will use the money on medial treatment to see again.
