Good photos Yas,
You are to be thanked for the time and effort you've given to taking these. Without the involvement of people like yourself who are prepared to put themselves out many a good car would be lost. The car looks pretty good and is well worth taking on. Could I hear the tappets being to noisy or was it the cambelt slapping ;D ;D ;D

Someone must buy this one.

Tappets? It's an ohc, usually just the injectors clicking, no worry there I'd say.
Yeh dj is right, someone needs to grab this!
Have it jimmy its transport at the end of the day and you can sell it once the pearl is finished!!
I can't live with an auto, even temp! Haha
Plus psl has got that manual diamond I'm looking at atm…

So, who's the lucky new owner of this?
My mate Ron, who owned the car, told me it had sold.
He wanted me to have it, but I didn't think I could do it justice, as I'm quite happy with what I'm using at the moment.
I've known Ron since the mid eighties when we worked together, and I know he kept the car on the top line for his wife.
I actually worked on it for him once when it was running a bit rough, and it's been fine ever since.
So c'mon, reveal yourself.

Mr smooth, I have purchased the vehicle...

Currently needs a little work but the body work is cracking for year! As I have moved down from Newcastle.

Can't wait to start driving her more often!

Hi Jonnybear,
Bit surprised they let you in, coming from Newcastle ;D ;D. It will be to warm for you down in the sunny south - how will you put up with the heat. I lived in the North East for quite a number of years - good people.

What is the rusty bit next to the silencer on one of the photos, would it be the fuel tank - needs looking at whatever it is.

Good luck with the refurbishment, the car looks like a good one.

You've got a nice car there Johnnybear. I know I'll regret not having it myself, but I know it's gone to a good home.
