Stunning, not a strong enough word for that car but it is! The colour is just glorious in the sunlight too, really bright.

How’s it handling the heat!?

This thread is making me feel a bit wibbly.

 

If there was ever a car that would force me to smash the piggy bank to smithereens and run off to That There England waving a thick wad of banknotes*... it'd be this one.

 

It's simply unbelievable.

 

Every time I look at it, I'm just blown away by its perfection. Not that it is perfect, in a Pebble Beach sense - but it just looks sooooo *right*. Just a well-cared for four or five year old car with the odd blemish, but that's somehow driven through a wormhole in time and popped out in 2018.

 

Phenomenal work!

 

 

 

*Presupposes that I might have a thick wad of banknotes. Which I don't. But, y'know, the sentiment still stands.

What a belter! I was brought home from hospital after being born in one of these (it was a "special" in Denim blue estate with the black strip on the boot). later my parents also had a 1.7 auto Ital estate and Ital van. from what I remembered they weren't terrible for rust, about as bad as any other car of the era, but they still rotted. I think out of the three, only the 1.7 auto didn't blow it's engine up, but back then cars did seem to knock out big ends etc and seize pretty regularly.
