Grant, it doesn't look like you have to be signed up to Twitter to use it, I suppose you would if you wanted to tweet though :D :D :D

I thought you would be up with all the social media, now you have become a You tube sensation :D

I have done a bit of the donkey work for you on the link below, basically I put Jensen Interceptor in the search and clicked on photos, you should be able to just scroll down for the images.

it has been a month or so since the last update. I finally have found my get up and go - it got up and went!!

Anyway a number of updates have been added to the Welcome page including the History of the Swedish Car that is for sale.

Since the start of the year, of the 382 cars listed as MK1 survivors, I have been notified about the condition of 133, it seems that 69 (51.88%) of those are on the road; 48 (36/09%] are under restoration and 16 [12.03%] are currently listed as for sale. I have also 'found' on facebook a car last seen in 2003 and am awaiting more details.

Thanks for those that have responded and, if you have an update please let me know. If I have missed any emails, again please let me know.

A couple of additions to the survivors site.

The eBay car was known but I had no info or photos so a page and album now created and added.

I have also taken Nigel's comments and Photos showing his restoration work and added them to the page for his car .

Just updating the Survivors site.


2 new cars listed as for sale 115/3236 and 115/3237- and one [115/2496 the second car now in Australia] will be offered for sale in the near future.

So far this year I have had 150 confirmations of the condition of the cars on the list. I have also added stunning photos from a Photoshoot for 115/2798
