  1. Good to hear an update, I was beginning to loose the faith with the general content; this makes me feel the love again.
  2. I’ve had far too many to count. I’ve probably had 15 s124 estates thinking simply of a specific model, so it’s fair to say I’m a fan, although I turned down a 2001 £500 v70 today. Purely on scarcity terms, this gumtree find (£200) in 2015 was probably my rarest shooting brake.
  3. It was ordered new by a high up military person (whilst in Germany) and it followed him wherever he went- the uk, Europe and his last job before he retired was the effective resident head of state in jersey. When he came back in 2011 it was given an 11 plate. Possibly a mix up generated by the potentially unique position it held as the personal transport of the effective head of state. When if first came back to the uk just after purchase first time round it was on an x plate IIRC.
  4. Maxus!!! Inventive use of rope. What’s it holding on/ down?
  5. Got another parking ticket! My excuse/ not an excuse was that my wrist watch needed winding. I’m sure I’d give them a good laugh at the enforcement place it if I tried that one!
  6. Well the jag continues to be low key and amusing, and the rover p4 remains with a local garage being tended to between jobs. What a heap of shit. Hopefully it will repay me by being a nice little runabout once it stops and goes properly. Meanwhile the minor found a new home for a healthy profit. I’ll take that as it can help pay for the p4 rehab bill.
  7. Cambridge 1975- items not on the Issigonis shopping list; 1) a hatchback 2) rustproofing @RobT
  8. Southampton 1991. SRI 130?
  9. Cambridge 1975 @Spottedlaurel
  10. Chod central- Peckham 1982
  11. This whole “Seeing me out” mentality is only relevant to me if it means that it will see the month out. That’s how forward thinking I am in cars, and in life.
  12. I had some sort of ocd episode on this thread in winter 2019, I was absolutely glued to the sainsbury archive website searching out shite spots. It was very addictive! Thanks to @trigger for highlighting it, that became my answer to what to do on long winter evenings with only a cat for company 🤣
  13. Was overnight in a sort of boutique hotel with a guest having particular taste in motors too…. Looked to be in daily driver sort of condition, and still with its original plates, or very good replicas…. The eagle eyed will see I also got a parking ticket on my travels, but not at the hotel. A cliche beside an old ruin, but which is which?
  14. No it didn’t, someone had this on retention and I made a lowball offer on it. I’m currently looking for a cheap early 60s london issue reg for the p4 which was stripped of its originally issued reg in 1989, whilst it was residing in Lincolnshire oddly enough. Probably an illogical thing to do but that’s life sometimes.
  15. You have clearly understood my relationship with this car 😂
