Drove it home from the sellers last night, drove it to work this morning. Happy with it so far. Tracks straight, no leaks/drips (that i've found yet), Everything works as it should (lights, windows, mirrors, gauges, etc).

Couple of items for the fix it list:
Radio has 'Wait', so will have to figure out how to reset it.
Interior lights don't come on, probably a fuse
Front diff grumbles when in 4wd, but fine in 2wd.

I've still got the beige Princess posted earlier in the thread, but she's waiting for surgery after a lot of rust was found on the last MoT. The red Princess has been sold to a new owner. Daily duties have been taken over by a Citroen Xantia, perhaps a little new to be a classic but still a respectable 17 years old.

Joining me next year is my little 39 year old Renault 6TL, bought for £80 from a field in Wales and still residing in Wales at present but not in a field.

Welcome to the forum :) You have a very pretty toy. Is she hibernating for the winter or are you out enjoying the odd sunny days we have?
Understeer: when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
Oversteer: when you hit the wall with the back of the car.
Horsepower: how fast you hit the wall.
Torque: how far you take the wall with you.

That's a very fine specimen by the look of it. Liking the black DS too. And the caravan. Welcome to the forum, your collection is most impressive.

JB I didn't go looking for the current fleet, they just sort of followed me home and now they won't leave without an extradition order from the Japanese government..
