If I didn't know any better, I'd say this was a collection thread.

The Granada was swift, smooth and comfortable as ever all the way to Chateau Breadvan for the handover to the GGG. Such a great long distance cruiser.

Here's my worry.

With the big bust up on here the other day, will anyone be posting up on here about this while in the care of The Junkmeister?
I know he's on the other place at the mo but I'd like to keep up with this car and it's keepers.

Bye friend.

Good to read you enjoyed the old Nadder. It now sounds amazing to think that no-one could give these Mk2s away in the late 90s and early 00s but it's true.

I know they were inexpensive to buy because I had 3 V6s as a mature student in Aberdeen late 90s. Naddas did 20 mpg or less in town but low miles covered during term time so ok.
And when there were a few ££s available then some trips to Skye to the Cuillins loaded with tentage, etc.

I really miss that car!
Best of luck getting it running again. It can't be anything serious, it's been fine all the years I had it and Skizzer/BV have been using it a lot recently too.

A lot of that is old age and damp getting to the electrics. It was a menace for it when I had it, much worse in winter! Tbh, it was a constant thing, cleaning and spraying up switch contacts etc etc. The 'computer' randomly shits it's pants too. It'll be ok sometimes then others it flashes all the warning lights seemingly randomly.
Glad it's running ok though!
