i visited these cars yesterday and will be going back in 3 weeks to salvage several parts to repair my gt and hopefully get the cars that can be saved moved under cover. The owner is a very nice chap and i have agreed to do some jobs for stephen in payment for the spares, i would say that the 2 estates and the gt will be moved (new i bought that range rover for a reason!!) and the rest stripped for parts i will do a full write up as and when i go back.

It's great that this thread goes on.. what's the status on this one : half bush/BX? Can you still see it? I think if you touch that it will fall into French dust.

This is great - I'd heard that these had all been crushed last year!

So is that another Mk1 RD estate being saved? [-o<

And has the GS Van broken in 2 yet?

Pretty sure it's long nose - I bought it for the 4x4 I never got around to working on - I just prefer steel bonnets.

It's at the back of the garage - which is full of stuff. I've enjoyed potholing but I'm not as flexible as I used to be :lol: I'll wander out there sometime this week and see if I can move it nearer to the front.
