Well, looking around at others I reckon £850 ono is a starting place.......... However hang fire that man....... I thought about classic insurance and becoming a 3 Ovlov person.
Swmbo said, " :roll: " then the immortal, "well I suppose if either the 850 or V70 are off the road I have another to drive and you will still have 'Tank' as back up" :thumbs:

So today I have been to see my insurers, they are preparing cover for the V70 & said 'assurance voiture d'collection' will not be a problem. I await the quote....... :geek:

Keep the Tank! Keep the Tank! Keep the Tank!........ panic ye not...... I've had an estimate for classic insurance here 10€ a month with virtually the same cover as I have now. No brainer, I shall soon be a 3 Ovlov owner! Phew :D

Advised tyres near to limit. I knew, but waited the outcome. Should have known better :D

So, I know have four Nankangs in the boot, fitting will be done on Monday to replace the ageing Hankooks.

A well overdue update!!!!!!

Firstly sorry for the loss of the pics, Photobucket 'threw a wobbler' and lost ALL of my photos :twisted: . Their support was hopeless :roll: .

Secondly, Tank has gone to pastures 'new'. Sold over here despite RHD to a French chap. Got what I paid for 'him' in 2002 as well :thumbs:

Thirdly, I've got a replacement....... Must start another 'bloggy' :?
