will sort out properly when i have time
right heres how i got her i was working in layton buzard and it drove past me 4 month ago so i followed it and asked the owner if he wanted to sell. he said no and took my number then on monday i got a phone call asking was i still intrested and if would be happy to pay 1500 for it, so i aranged to go and look at it. when i got there he said it is a reluctant sale as me and my wife love this car but we are stugling to get in and out of it (they are both in there late 60's).he said looking round it theres a bit more rust than i thought so would you be happy paying me 1300 god dam yer (and keep looking for rust :mrgreen: )

its got service history up to 80k stamped in the book this was done by the main tecnicion at griffin house vauxhall a family friend he said

a brand new multi changer and head unit never fitted still in the box this was a gift from his son

the original radio and codes

even still got the sunroof key in bubble rap never opened

2 sets of floor mats 1 for winter and 1 for summer

he gave me the news paper cliping from were he bought the car he payed £14000

when i reversed the car out of there drive the lady started to cry and asked for custady :lol:

and when i was paying his wife for it he even took it to the garage and filled it with fuel so i could drive the 200 miles home

i dont think it gets much better than that :D :D

Expensive way of fixing the problem with your V6 :roll:








Tubby look quite tidy though :mrgreen: no wear on the seat bolster either, you got a steal there :handgestures-thumbupleft:
