Thanks Mark.

It's made my day that at least one person can understand my bemusement at the state of things.
I've owned mine for nearly three years now and haven't driven it once yet. I absolutely love it.
I paid the asking price with no history, the engine out and the gearbox in pieces. A fatal mistake if you listen to anyone fixated with re-sale values. For me it was my heart and gut telling me yes. The chap I bought it off knew who won Le Mans in '71 which was all the history I needed. I knew it was the one instantly. History means very little today, a bit like the M.O.T. test. Know the right people and it'll pass. With something this old you just stand back, decide if you really want one and get ready for the ride. Life's too short to worry about whether the sun roof opens or if the oil was changed in 1981.

I've had some memorable times in an MGB too, just never bought the poster.
Enjoy your car and don't let it go. Mine is staying with me for good.

Thanks.

Robert.
