    Ah, that looks nice. If you do pick it up before your next garage day Phil, that might tempt me over.......

    Had a few 124 Coupe versions when I was a lot younger. Great cars. Always fancied a Spyder.

    I regret getting rid of my 124 Spider, lost a fortune on it after the RHD conversion but hey ho. Fun whilst I had it and resto was straight forward. But just didn't use it enough, 4000 odd miles in 4 years but a couple of hundred in the last year meant it wasn't getting the use it needed so it had to go.. The Stratos was always favourite for a quick blast!
    I'll have a look and see if I've got any bits left over including any manuals & books that can go to a good home! Looking forward to the garage day Phil!

    Hi Phil, yeah, I'll be at your garage day again...I'll take that as an invitation to next year's since I've never been to yours before

    Thanks for the offer of the wine tokens, but really, you don't have to. I wouldn't give it to someone if I thought they were just gonna sell it on and make money, but if it helps someone out then that'll do me! ...even if it's you, hahaha! And it's definitely a genuine spider one cos when I looked at it earlier it was still full of cobwebs and dead arachnids :-P

    Was trying to think who my good lady might be, but no, there's only Leah, and she's just evil. Mostly...

    It's full of period photos, as you'd expect from his books.

    Sharp tongue? That's an understatement....when she yawns you can see a stamp on it that says "Wilkinson Sword"...dunno how she's not ripped her cheeks and gums to shreds!

    I'll fetch that manifold down to yer Garage Day, and you can examine it minutely and whinge and moan about it and demand a discount. Well if you don't ask...
