I like the advisory note on the "LYKAMOBILE OPEN TOP CARRIGE" (sic) test certificate. Come to think of it, the same note appears every time: "Slight play in all wheels.."

Like me, my initials are in fact as common as fleas on a cat so, much as I'd like a Lagonda, that lucky soul was someone else. :(
The silver Lagonda was registered on the 27th of July, 1939. That was a darned fine spot mate, :thumbs:
:D

:lol: Solution: Get several hundred sets of prints made from your photos and post them out - in the actual mail - to every forum member. Job done! :P

Very nice Mk.2 Jag (E-reg .. so 1967?)

Dark grey/silver and happily motoring up the M40 northbound towards junction 9 yesterday morning (at least I think it was nearing J9).
