I'm going for a Rialto or Robin, as Dollywobbler was eyeing them up a few months back.

Di transit or 200tdi Landy and he could have pushrods and cambelts - unlucky

 

Not only that they buried the cambelt 15ft inside the front of the engine on the LRs, brilliant plan...

Why does my memory tell me those were normally built with a Renault transaxle?

Sussex has been achieved. Google lied. It's a mere 160 miles from Dudley to here. I love cruise control.


Imo Dudley should be 160 miles or more from anywhere......

Didn't he say he intends to get it running and drive it home? I wouldn't want to do Sussex to Wales in one of those but if he does that will be one hell of a collection!

I don't know but it's been dragged out further than the reveal of a TV talent show winner.

Cut to the chase!

Not today admittedly, but the OP does say this so there may be some driving involved at some point.

 


Plan is just to move said subject matter to a safe location, though my eventual dream is indeed to drive it back to Wales.

 

 

If it is what it seems to be, rather him than me!
