Not as useless as the Chevette's, there's nowhere for its wipers to wipe the snow to.

If you are in Malmo you need to visit the classic car sales pitch that is run by old boy and has high turnover of budget classics and restoration projects. It is chod heaven out there.

I noticed that you photo'd my friends wedge in his yard it is a bit of a tourist magnet.

I thought somebody on here might know that Princess. Your pal does stuff on my Mini - looking forward to completion of his Marina Coupe restoration.

Re classic car pitch..do you mean Bilmarknaden? Thats where the Allegro was for sale

Steve and the team work on a lot of British classics from the surrounding area. The Marina coupe is one of many projects, I am sure there will be progress over the winter when the main workshop is less busy.

Bilmarknaden - glad you mentioned the name, as I've been looking to see if the 2dr Granada pictured is still for sale. I expect its already sold. Are these recent pictures. I am looking for a 2dr but the decent ones that have come up have been to far North to make it viable to send someone with a transporter.

I know all about the Brown one and it was there when I was over in May. I will ask him if he still has it. He was intending to re-commission it but a better project came up. I'd certainly consider as an option.
