Orkney to Gloucester via Bristol for my 159, so basically the full length of the country! It was scruffy and needing some work, but had the engine I wanted (2.2 jts) in a colour I liked (red with beige leather and gold dash trim) and had been for sale long enough to have had the price reduced twice so was pretty cheap by the time I took the plunge.
Driving that distance with an engine management light and a sticky brake (there were several other, less serious faults as well!) was a bit of a worry, but made for a decent road trip for me and my better half as we came up via the A82 rather than the usual boring section of the A9!
Would have preferred to have found one closer to home, but have no regrets (except letting an immaculate 156 in Dundee to go some other lucky so-and-so!)
Just checked and it works out to roughly 690 miles from our house to where we collected the car.... obviously we still had to get back home....
If you start crying during a flood you're only adding to the problem
