Brilliant news! Finally, after a few false starts, the car can be sorted! :-D

Thanks to Martin the car will be used as an 'attraction' at events as it is so well known. We think this will attract a lot of interest and encourage owners to find out more about what we are doing.

I last saw the car a couple of years ago at the PoL, it was then owned by Lewis. I was a amazed when I saw the history with the car, previous invoices, newspaper article etc.

Glad it's now in your custody and I look forward to future updates.

I tried to buy it off ebay and was outbid by the chap who sold it to Lewis. This was the car that got me into 75's. Great to see it where it should be owned by enthusiast.

Nice acquisition :D Can I be cheeky and ask for the postponement of the pictures and write up? I think it would make a great article for the magazine. :hail:

Yep works well for me Karl! :-D With currently 5 of them on the drive, 2 of which are on the road, I need as much time fixing as possible!

That said, after doing my ankle in last night, I'm not getting anywhere or doing anything particularly quickly at the minute! :gmc:

Me to......................it's taken me on a roller coaster of a ride and introduced me to some of this counties finest chaps................god save Midsummer or something :shock:

so, it's so far.............one 160 MG ZT-T one V8 ZT-T (now super charged) one Rover 75 estate 2ltr diesel (very nice) and of course that car that started it all off. Oh I don't own the 160 anymore.

is this a Midsummer crisis or just me? :shrug: :-D :-D
