That's about it, plus general tarting around, both of those were done again last year... I'm fortunate enough to live very near Rejen, the work needed was way above my pay grade, it's a transformed car after a fairly full on mechanical recom. When I've got over that bill I'll start thinking about the body! Much work...

"Antiques Roadtrip" has featured two interceptors.
One belonging to "Great escapes" hire company and the convertible then belonging to ex chairman Ed Pillinger.
And whilst looking in vain for pictures of either of those, I did find this pic of a Healey being used in the same programme...

The film "All the money in the world" was on the TV. I watched it thinking it was about the cost of running a Jensen and, low and behold, Mark Wahlberg was dashing about in an Interceptor :D (while negotiating to reunite Paul Getty III with his ear :shock: )

Hi all
Just away in the motor home with no signal.
So finished off watching Luther last episode series three.
There is a dark brown Mk 1 FF with black interior an cotton reels.
The over dub of the engine running sounds like a Perkins firing on three.

I remember watching an episode of minder called "National pelmet", one of the originals with Terry McCann which had a Healey in it towards the end.
