    Hi Mandy, got chatting cars with an older Gent the other day, and he invited me in the garage
    to see his 'pride & joy'.

    Think he just tinkers with them, polishes them up.
    He'd just sold a moded Mk2 Escort, and bought the Austin A40.

    Do know he and the wife drive the Mk1 to the French Alps most summers,
    you can see French Car Club stickers in the windscreen.

    Real petrol head, was a pleasure.

    Wow @ste360 that is amazing, what a lovely gentleman to invite you in to see his collection; and how interesting for you to meet such a petrolhead and hear all about them from him :)

    Don't know about the Jag, the fella who owned that wasn't around.

    really? never knew that. cant say i've seen the engine bay of one before. a grey mk2 jag went past me last week, back in the 60's they must have felt like a sierra cossie or an M5
