As soon as its running nicely it will be the first place that it is taken, I can assure you :D even the Xantia lapped it up, its one of those roads that you don't have to be giving 110% to get enjoyment out of it.

I've got a rather nice Monza interior for sale Mr Starmore, see my For Sale thread. A 16v for scrap value, that's unbelievable, you lucky bar steward!!! :lol:

That road looks worth a visit.
Good heavens! My signature's been moderated...

Cheers Tim, after a little consideration we've decided against the respray, the rough patches will be done and then the whole car just needs a going over with the polish.

TGD was sold yesterday and I'm hoping the new owner is happy with it, although it does have to come back briefly as shortly after it was sold the heater fans stopped working, typical :roll:.
