I've been hankering after something a bit older again. The Cadillac and Panda are fun but still modern therefore have no nostalgia linked to them, which for me anyway is part of owning a car that isn't for daily tractor duties.

 

The problems I have are I have a limited budget.

I don't want a project with no mot (already have 2 of them). I don't mind a bit of fettling but I want to be able to use it.

I'd like a bit of scope to improve it and maybe get my money back at some time in the future.

 

I needed to sell MrsC's Daihatsu to free up my shite fund but some turned up and took it away on Saturday, the shite gods aligned and I ended up buying something.

 

I was all set for a kollection but I called the chap up and he was obviously so desperate to get rid of it he offered to deliver it to me. It just turned up. 

 

Anyone want to take a guess?

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. And if it is broke just ignore it, and maybe it'll be sort of OK...?

Check out this arch repair. The arches feel solid but god knows how much chicken wire is in there.

It's got a years mot and seems structurally sound. Lots of trim looks like its about to fall off.

I've not driven it yet but it sounds okay. I probably spent too much on it.

 

Can't wait for a drive of it!
