    Thanks Chaps,

    We missed this car 6 years ago when it had 19k miles, the then owner was cutting down his collection, it came up for sale again and we grabbed it today

    Ridiculously low.

    When we saw it 6 yrs ago, my wife just fell in love with it, we just waited 1 day too long and missed it. Saw it again today and put the deposit down.

    As silly as it sounds the car could need a lot doing to it as nothing has been replaced due to ware and tare, but a lot of the parts will perish with age

    It’s getting a 60k service and check through before we collect it from the specialist. He knows the car well as he sold it 6 yrs ago and has serviced it annually since then.

    This is our third car from him now

    Hello and welcome to the forum. Check all the rubber bits, eg bushes etc as they always degrade with age
