      Ktee made me join up just so I could respond! Hahaha!

      1971 was a good vintage pinklady54, I too am curious to see what you've got. My guess is a Jensen Interceptor!

      My apologies for the gratuitous plug, but it's best to start reading through the Iron Lady Imports site - if you want a breakdown of importing costs, just fill in the contact form or message me here.

      Hi Pink, we have two things in common Cliff and Classics. Had a 66 Minor Convertible 1000 a few years back, but sold it during a messy divorce.
      This isn't mine but it looked like this

      So have you kept it the saffron colour?

      Cliff, the first concert I ever went to was the 1978 20th Anniversary Tour at the Palladium. did the 30th but missed the 40th? Made up for it at Wembly for the Time Machine Tour.

      Hi Pinklady54, did you get an email from me? It may have come through after you posted, sorry for the delay, but you have a full breakdown of the likely costs in there :)

      My Dad had a gorgeous Austin Healey Sprite that he owned for a number of years, drove it around everywhere then decided to restore it to concourse condition. When he was done, he lost interest and sold it off, much to my dismay!
