Sounds a lot of money for a non-runner, RHD cars must be hard to shift in France. You need to find out exactly what's wrong and how much it would cost to fix. My innate cynicism tells me that if it were something simple the seller would have done it.

You're not wrong there mate, but second hand cars are a lot more expensive than the uk. When I brought my mr2 over it was a third of the price id pay here.. there was quite a market until brexit came along..

Had to look up SHMBO, I'm used to acronyms that use the initial letter, as in: SWMBO, there again text speak where the letter 'U' replaces 'you,' brings me out in hives.
As for her permission, this might help:

Nothing like a warm pussy. And as for that A35 project, do let me know when it's finished, I know just the job that you can put it to.

I'm a long, long way to getting my A35 in that state!!

Owners' Club have had that van on our stand at NEC in the past.


We've also discovered the where-abouts of James Hunt's old A35 van (conversion). :thumbs:

It was bought at auction a few months ago and is owned by a new Club member. It is currently under-going repairs as it had been badly neglected. We think, but we aren't 100% sure, it may be the most expensive A35 in the UK!! :shock:

Does help if I learned to type (or put my reading specs on!) ... only worked in IT for 40+ years ... some of that as a programmer!! (Still coding for Owners' Club as I manage the website!)
