Which one did you buy?

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...?

So car picked up, filled up and already a hour of driving back.

Here's the reveal:

I somehow managed to loose GGG in traffic jam near Brum.
So went straight home, I mean to the MOT appointment.

No adventures on the way, completely uneventful. Is that how it's supposed to work?

Few little gimmicks to be sorted out.

Thank you GGG for your time and effort.

Go to sleep car. You're tired.

Those two mk3s on the A6 in Luton are all that seems to be left of a fleet used to advertise that builder. A couple of weeks ago a P6 similarly signer tidied appeared in the Tat thread. Up until about a fortnight ago a Morris 1000, Ford 100e and a Volvo 245 were sitting outside a petrol station a couple of hundred yards from the Zephyr and Zodiac, but they've recently gone, possibly Fitzgerald sold the garage.

Since I did a lot of the drivage, with Mr Conelrad taking over just before Brum on the up trip,

my spotting harvest is meagre indeed, but sure doesn't lack in quality.

I present to you the trendsetting Safari look:

No British tea was hurt in making of that photo.

As a British tea I was extremely hurt. Traumatised even.

I know where he lives. He also has a Montego estate also in red and mould. It is listing badly but he still clocks up a fair few miles!

I'll take a pic of his driveway,

I think I saw that Montego Estate up near Newport a couple of months back.

 

Well done on the 405 collection,  hopefully have mine back on the road soon.  Saloons are getting a rare sight now.
