Sorry but I couldn't resist it!

I'm afraid the 308's work is going to get knocked back for another while guys, sorry. But I couldn't pass this one up and it's sapped up all the money put by for the 308's work.
In my defence I was for keeping the Challenger and the Merc but I thought it would make more sense in the long run to have just one car to do everything and this works for me.
A mate of mine has owned it for a few years now and only decided last week to let it go.
It's a 2001 Range rover TD5 Autobiography which comes with almost every toy you can think of. The thing cost £43k when it was new and is in almost excellent condition. I won't have it home until the end of the week but can't wait.

Ahh, you are not as Elite as the rest of us. Now there is something else out there you will always be wondering about.

I think you need to go into the user control panel and join the group "backroom lounge"

I'm sad now, I've tried to be a good forum member, to be friendly to everyone, to be helpful, to encourage peoples dreams, to get involved. I even have a link to here from my own little site. I feel like a cast out now, thrown out with the cat

I've actually only just caught that one on, Boy was I slow.

Kick a man when he's down do.

As to not being Elite enough to access the attatched thread, maybe ignorance is bliss by not knowing what it may hold for me

Erm, I'm not brave enough (and slightly embarrased) to make a new post for this one. Got a call last week from a man who said he had a 4x4 Panda lying in his field. Having a real soft spot for them I went to see it,,, and bought it.
The plan is to restore it to as new condition next year. It's not is as bad condition as I thought it might be.



Oh and I bought a 500 to while I was there.

So during the restorations will you have to field many requests?

I know, these things just seem to have grown out of hand.

@ Pete I'm not sure the bike is what it says on the cap. There's a few people checking it out.

I took the 500 (or what's left of it) for a few parts for mine.
