still here

As it says Still here, and still enjoying the B5, its got a sleeper advert on car and classics but to date no serious enquirys.

Most recent mechanical activity was new OE rear disks and pads. Main dealer trauma, as expected so wasn't a surprise when it happened. (numerous visits to find the wrong discs ordered and eventaually when the right parts fitted, poor adjustment of rear Hand brake shoes resulted in them having to be repaced after they disintergrated.) No complaints about the way they sorted the problem but obviously would have preferred it to have just been right the first time. Oil service brilliantly handled at Nottingham with the best covid system I've yet seen. (needless to say it wasn't Nottingham who cocked up the disks)

So just hunkererd down really and taking a break from the FB Which is just rubbish and too confrontational. Looking forward to a northern meet up some time, I I have an offer of a marke specific space for around ten cars- ish at the Stokesley classics on show, show. if it happens should know After the new year so Maybe see you all there...

I'm not that worried Hap I only advertised it on one of the CC free adverts Its still a pleasure to own and drive, I also have a full warranty for parts and labour so its well covererd the stokesley show if they hold it is good fun and plenty of interesting stuff always in attendance. It would nice to get a gathering there! easy to get to just 8 miles off the A19 and literally on the begining of the B1257 to Helmsley great driving road.
