you are quite right, it is a nice drive and I reckon you'd enjoy the car.
I'm planned back in the UK somewhere around the end of January, and there is someone in Yeovil who I want to visit. I'll pop in then for you to take a look.
By that time I will also know where I'm being sent next, and I'm hoping for Spain or Portugal. If it one of those, I shall be talking with you about a spare 16v engine to play with. I'm hoping to be somewhere where I can play with cars on a regular basis for a change!
