That does look tidy and is at a realistic price. Probably the only car worth going to see for months.

Like that, not “Parnell Perfect” , but a nice, real , car to have fun with.

Price feels rightish as well, few months ago might of been over £20k, which is sobering - feels more of a correction than a price drop though ....maybe we are seeing reality again?

That’s really nice, and a reasonable price! Very tempting
