Wave hi all

hi just joined the forum so thought i`d give you a quik lowdown on myself, the car (Allie-named by my grand daughter) and her fans!!

Myself and my daughter bought Allie at the car Auctions in Kinross,Scotland. We`ve got auction experiance and i`m a time served mechanic, however we were late and litteraly had 30secs to run over to her and poke our heads inside,watch her being started and BID!
Usually not so last min but events prior caused a huge rush.
As soon as the hammer fell we turned to each other in horror, wat have we done! None of the checks done or anything! This could be a pig in a poke! And i`ve got to drive it back down to West Lothian, if it makes it!

Amazingly the next morn wen we had a good look at her it appeared we had fallen on our feet!

She was MINT, obv lovingly looked after inside,outside and underneath! EVERYTHING works no issues at all. Wat a beautiful car, she`s dark scarlet (would love to know proper colour?) and well loved by all.
Had her for 8months now and would`nt swap her for anything(apart from a V6!-just the engine tho eg transplant).
More news to follow-and piccies!!
