I love it. Upgrades: Bulbs! new earth connection! Wiper wheel box £32.50 and wiper arm £62.00!! (my cat was on bread & jam that week!) Problems: Generally it's been good (touch wood) but the electrics can be a swine! Does not like water and have had windscreen re-sealed. Info: Owned 3x MG before and a Daimler, but this car is lovely. I like to think of it as an expensive mistress. I'm hooked and cannot imagine selling it. I've not seen many others about. Its in the garage now and I want to go and check its still there!!
Me and an old friend of mine taken at The Prince Charles Theatre in London on Friday nite. I had just asked if he had managed to get the Cortina out the roof yet!! I've just started to get feeling back in my neck!!
