If someone sets up a go fund me page for the fuel for Sealtainn to drive it to Shetland I'm happy to chuck a tenner in (that should just about get it to the end of wuvvum's street)

Yeah I'll give him a tenner.

But for that I would like to have a sit in it in Newcastle!

Sealtainn has form, having collected the Granada from me in south London and driving it back to The Shetlands. So wouldn't be surprised if he does the whole trip himself...

I’m thinking I really need it with a new MoT as I haven’t got another week off from work till 15th April. Is anyone able to arrange MoT and hold on to it for me till then? I’ll happily send money for repairs.

If you think about the same person as me, didn't he mention in this exact thread that he doesn't want any of us to win it so it won't show up at his garage? lol

Hopefully plans will fall into place and a collection will take place next week as a fellow lunatic (sorry, enthusiast) has very kindly offered to collect said bucket of magnificence and keep hold of it till I’m able to collect and in the meantime put it to Stevie Wonder Motors for an MoT.

I’m thinking that as their appears to be so many masochists on here who want a shot of this fine & noble steed that instead of collecting it myself we could do a 200 leg relay up country or something (if there were enough people willing to, of course).
Either that or I’ll collect from Rob or somewhere else if it’s made it’s way further up country.
What say you, fellow internet lunatics?

It’s pronounced Shell-Tan and it means Shetland in Scottish Gaelic

I've arranged to collect it from Wuv tomorrow, and will try to book an MoT for Wednesday/Thursday. The garage I use are old car friendly and do their best to get them through, so fingers crossed. I'll have a go trying to sort the insecure battery fail before the test.

I'm looking forward to wafting back to London in this!

Aha - I figured it was Gaelic. I speak Irish where "ea" is usually pronounced to sound like the "a" (flat A) in "bath"!

If I'd discovered it had a light-up keyhole before I roffled it, the sale would never have been on.
