This looks fabulous.


Yes it has! Its just been to Tony & Guys for a short sides and windback. New clocks at some point. Actual mileage much further north. Seller was upfront about it though.

This vehicle has short-circuited my brain.

 

I like brown cars.

 

I like big saloons with twin headlamps.

 

I like wood 'n' leather interiors.

 

And yet somehow I look at this and I think it's terribly over the top.  I don't understand what's gone wrong.

 

(I love it anyway.  Well done.  Where's the dog going to go?)

That looks awful. Because I'm kind, I'd let you swap it for an obscure Japanese import with not enough doors, but only because I'm kind.

 

Who am I kidding? That's the most amazing colour scheme of the 1990s, surely? I didn't think any of these came in an actual colour. Amazing.
