75 3.0 V6 - E71 Xgn
Does anyone know of the continued existence of a Rosso 3.0 V6 - registration no. E71 XGN, last seen 7 years ago on the Suffolk/Essex border ?
As a former owner I miss it like crazy and can forgive its many small faults but I still wonder whether the old girl is still out there puffing out clouds on the overrun (damned stem seals !). Today the bland dependability of my Audi A3 makes for a very dull but efficient day to day car.
Oh for the joy of the old days - transaxles, inboard discs, propshaft donut changes, those constantly flashing red warning lights and a very lively rear end (especially in the wet) !
To all of you lucky 75 owners out there - keep the faith - you don't know what you've got until it's gone !
