Re: New mental disorder - Classic Car Anxiety Disorder (CCAD

My wife suffered from a common condition, anxiety her husband may buy (yet) another classic car. After years of experimenting I've discovered there is a cure for her.

Re: How much

You're right that is a stunning car, I saw it when I was up there recently. I wasn't sure I'd like the colour but I loved it!

Re: Millard's musings.

Peter Hall was the first owner of my FF, 119/006. I am pretty sure he was the real life person one of the characters (the Forger) in the film The Great Escape was based on!

Re: 5 Interceptors & 1 SP for sale at Cropredy bridge

There's a lot of buying interest from people new to Jensen at the moment, if members are looking to sell we could shift cars on commission pretty quickly; I agree it's two good MkIII's gone but I also like the SP, it's drives really well and made me grin every time I put my foot down, if I had more ...

Re: 119/006
