It was worth it but fuck me you put a days work in that day.

 

It was getting emotional at the end, but I wasn't too hard on myself - at the hottest point of the day I treated myself to a bottle of Doom Bar.  That kept me going!  :-D

Cracking buy. These are still lookers today aren't they? We had a silver 2.3 around 2001. There was something special about it and it felt really well made. I always loved glancing back to admire it when I left it anywhere.

I've got about three or four onward buyers lined up for this one already, it's a pretty popular car still it seems!

Absolutely stunning cars, one of the best looking in the 90's in my opinion.  Everything still seems to work on it, which is a testament to the build quality and the previous owners all looking after it.

I think so, it isn't blocky like it's predecessor, and it's before some cars started looking very weird.

 

Very envious of yours though, I wouldn't mind having a go on a manual one sometime just to see what it's like!

Not yet, been a bit too busy recently. Plus an expensive month of buying two cars and all the costs associated with it has really not helped. a post in the Prelude group on Facebook reckoned a grand to put it right which I think is total bollocks personally. If I do the Prelude though, I'll have to do the TurboSwede as well. It's only fair!

One of the funniest things ive read on here - RIP Dave

Brilliant... late in for lunch I fired up an off-brand pot noodle and while carrying it to the lounge successfully spilled it all over myself, burned the piss out of my hand, soaked my phone with the juice, soaked a load of expense receipts I was also carrying and it hit the hall floor and just fucking exploded....it was literally dripping from the ceiling in my newly decorated hallway. The obvious and considered reaction was to throw an immediate, massive paddy and boot the fucker down the hall while screaming, which has made the whole scenario about 18 times worse.

Nice Prelude! :)

With a musical model name, it makes perfect sense to upgrade the speakers.
