Modern air con, strange looking cooling fan !

Re: FF for Auction - Brightwells

Lots of cars at the same auction failed to sell, Classic car prices are very depressed at present because of all the political uncertainty. Great time to buy but not so good when your selling!

Re: 1974 Road Test of MK3 Interceptor.

Yes, I have often wondered about that, the V5 clearly states the date of 1st registration as 5 July 1973-so it should be an "L" but its been given an "M". I suppose someone at DVLA slipped up.

Car out at local meeting today.

Hi,
Great weather today and a chance to show the Jensen to some local car enthusiasts at Madingly Hall in Cambridge. I've just got it back after a repair of the rusty bits behind the rear wheels and its looking and driving fine.

Re: Jensen interceptor print

Sorry I can't sell it to you as it was a present from my friend. I have sent you a PM with his details , as it is a limited edition print he probably has another he could sell you.
Cheers
