Sedatley, or with "Spirit"? Hows the gearbox holding out, and do you have any trouble with the handbrake/brake calipers sticking/seizing? I've been advised to get an 88/89 onwards (because of the handbrake change), but if a good earlier car came up then a post '84 because of unleaded only in the pumps scenario. I fancy a car with some real go now. -- Carl Robson http://www.bouncing-czechs.com
