    I'm certain you will enjoy getting to know your car. The noise they make if they still have the original twin pipe exhaust is awesome! The car will happily tootle around towns in 5th at 30mph, and will still pull cleanly away when you floor it. It REALLY comes alive at 3000rpm. Top speed is about 140mph.
    This is a uk import is it? It should still have the mph speedo in it.
    I wish I could put mine on the road, but I'm waiting for my mate to get better. (he's the welder, not me)

    I just had a thought. (god, 2 in one day, miracle )
    If the car doesn't have an owners manual, I would be happy to scan mine, and e-mail it to you. john s

    It would seem that you have a few cars...

    I can only ever afford to own one at a time...at present that is a volvo 1800s... personally I have preferred the Daimler 250 and D Special owned previous...

    Which one do you drive daily??
    Be honest!

    That'll be the 2005 Magna he wasn't brave enough to list

    BTW: I sent the CX CD-ROM yesterday, so expect it at about the same time the car arrives

    Icon6 Its a long story Aaron

    My daily driver is the BX when I havent broken it or I'm carting shit around for the other cars or the farm or the family which means usually the old grey nurse XL ute is the one one parked at the Pub .The Volvo is only a recent arrival and I'm still getting it ready for some serious road rallying hate to think what the bills are adding up to -new front end -new shocks -new fuel tank -new brake booster -fixing the wiring -diff overhaul -new exhaust the list goes on . The XY 4wd UTE is original concourse so it only comes out to frighten people every now and then . The floride is a restoration job sad little car I picked up of a street verge still licensed but not a happy car . The Aston is my dream car brought it when I thought I was rich and they were cheap 20 years ago came as a rude awakening I think you have to own a country, an oil well or be part of a royal family to be able to afford to run maintain and repair one of these cars, its got a very good car cover on it and every time I think I've got enough money to do anything to it I take the cover of and it proves me wrong . The Daimler is a work in progress also. The Jeep is for the yuppy horsie shit that keeps the girlys happy and the Mazda is the sensible car that everyone can drive (auto with the indicators on the right side ) and the makita drill gets driven everywhere
    It will be interesting to see where the CX is going to fit in

    You should speak with Gerry Lister if you haven't already... I went and had a look at his 1800s race car last weekend and talked shop... Heís a genuine and amiable fellow.

    anyways just wondering about all those cars...
    I am sticking to my one car policy - one is definitely enough to worry about.

    The Daimler will be the surprise packet for you when you get it going.
    Good luck with the CX.

    DS next I presume?

    YES GERRY HAS BEEN SUPPLYING JUST ABOUT ALL THE PARTS FOR THE VOLVO IF ONLY CITROEN PARTS WERE SO CHEAP
    You must be reading my mind be quitely surveying the DS scene but prices are a bit exy a nice late 2.3 efi safari would be very interesting or a beaten up wreck that I could do a chaperon chop on

    Icon12 Bugger to soon

    To many cars not enough time your car looks quite smooth but I need to draw breath, have a cold shower , spend some time in the room of mirrors , learn to keep my trap shut and sort out what I already have on the go other wise I'll be locked up
