    After I sold her almost 11 years ago, Gertie popped up for sale on one of the FB groups. She was only £500 so I had to buy her back! She was still owned by the people I sold her too all those years ago!

    She needs TLC (lots of broken switches, scratched interior, broken window regulator, a bit of laquer peel, a few rust bubbles on the roof, EML lights on) shes not looking too bad though and still lowish mileage at 85k.

    Drove the 250 miles home no problem!

    Plan this weekend is to change the Cambelt and Water Pump, replace the oil level sensor, service her and replace the Lambda sensor (post Cat) hopefully that'll get rid of the annoying EML and bleep!
