Went over to Bovingdon via Chesham today, and Blow Me! There's a Blue 96 in a driveway, just as Simon said!

I went over and rang the doorbell. The owner wasn't in, but his wife was. Apparently they've had the car since the early 90s! It was his first attempt at a restoration, and I have to say it looks in excellent condition! He's got a couple of other classics as well, including a VW Karmann Ghia. Apparently he usually uses the 96 at the week-ends, but had taken the VW today as it hadn't had a run for a bit! If he'd taken the 96, I would have missed it!

Anyway, I've left my 'phone number. Hopefully he'll ring, and I can entice him onto the forum!

Glad it was still there and that you got to talk to someone about it.

As you say, hopefully he'll venture on to the forum soon...



Cheers,

Simon

I've had an e-mail from him, and have just replied. I've pointed him to the forum, and suggested that he let me know if he decides to join so I can vouch for him and speed up the enrollment!

I'll probably drop round to see him later in the week!

Looks like a nice one!

Saw the blue 96 in Chesham old town yesterday, if I hadn't known it lived round there, I probably wouldn't have resisted pointing or waving! Managed to stay composed and just smiled instead, it looked great and sounded even better!

Have you moved up here yet, or are you still looking Simon?

Hi Pete,

Were all moved in, still finding our feet, but getting there. You're welcome round for cuppa anytime you're in the neighbourhood!


Cheers,

Hi Simon,

I'm on a long week this week - Mon, Tues, Weds, Fri, Sat and Sun - and all 12 hr shifts except Sat and Sun! So I won't be around much until next week!

I'm at work at the moment, but will PM you my address and 'phone before I set off for work tomorrow morning - provided I'm awake enough to remember!

Planning to swap the gearbox in the 95 in a couple of weeks time, for my "hot spare". Then get the removed one rebuilt....

So many cars, so little money!!!

;)

Hi Pete,

No rush, just thought I'd let you know... if you need a hand with anything, let me know, especially as I don't have a V4 at the moment, would be good to work on one again.


Cheers,

Simon

I must have missed something, have you sold the 95?
