Well done Dome! You now own one if the best cars ever made, even if it isn't the best example of one.
I salute you,

Hope to be able to attend the collection with the HMS LexBardge! :)

The 2k RPM idle when cold, with the backboxes removed, really endears me to my neighbours.

Doubles as a fog generator on those proper cold mornings!

Drove past one of these today, fuck me they're quite big aren't they?

In other news my spare no claims policy will come in handy, £150 for a years insurance.

It looked massive sitting in the main Street in Girvan. I know what you mean about it being small compared to modern stuff. Although I was still hungover when I saw it...

Haha.

Timing belt doesn't look like too bad a job on these (compared to a certain Clio) and I'm guessing discs/pads will be a priority.

OH ARSES IM GOING TO FIX THIS AREN'T I?
