Picked her up today, M10 Auto slush box :mad: , eleccy mirrors and that's it!
Drove very nice, relaxed and wallowing in the wind :mad:
Lightweight, and no, not because of rust, had a good look over and only spotted 2 small problems.
Get back from work tomorrow and start stripping the interior out.
Oh, and thanks Floppy :wink: for the graffiti :roll: :mad:

Hi Dave, yea, got told while the bonnet was up, and nathan confirmed it was FLOPPY, but he does need a course in handwriting and design though.
Looks to be OK on the outside, bits need doing, but i'll get started tomorrow.
I can't believe how it was on the motorway though, for a 4 pot sluchbox, it quite surprised me. :D

Rav's got no chance of joining CR24v.

He has no taste and is tight. S50 is a dream........

He'll ruin a solid chromie with an anchor mark my words :(
