Many thanks to all you guys who wished me well in the A.R. Forum.
Since moving to Cumbria almost 2 years ago, I haven't seen another 75 apart from my Grey metallic H reg and my wife's Black metallic LE, which we traded in a couple of months ago. I've still got my "project" in the garage based on a G reg, but it won't be immediately recognisable as a 75 when it sees the light of day, if it ever does.
So, if you encounter a "Grigio Medio Met" 75 in this part of the world, it'll most likely be me.
