It's Alive

Don,t know if you recall this thread

To cut a long story short, decided to get it sorted.
So yesterday after flight down to East Midlands Airport, I was picked up by Roy Sells, who kindly offered to pick me up, he is the chap who picked the car up and took it to Ital Autos in Chesterfield for me. Picked up the car and headed off a 6.30 pm for Inverness. Keeping it at 2500 rpm about 60 mph all the way home to run the engine in I got in the door at 3.30am this morning. I would have been home at 3.15 am but the boys in blue in a Range Rover parked at the side of the road decided they would pull me over for a stop check. Is this your car etc back ground check done and sent on my merry way, they were obviously bored and did comment on the nice car . The drive was perfect, smooth and trouble free. So I've clocked up 460 miles already, I'm getting the oil changed at 500 miles , check everything is ok and give it a wash and a polish. So overall delighted with the car and looking forward to when I can give it a more enthusiastic drive once the engine is run in
