Sadly not great. The car is now my inheritance and very kindly gifted to me by the family as step dad passed away so a true labour out of love is what this car Is. I aim to get her to as good a standard as I can and maintain her. Being ever organised he's left a huge amount of documentation so here the story really begins.

And a little snippet of some of the goodies she contains
