Joe Posted January 4, 2008 Share Posted January 4, 2008 I got home from work this afternoon and found this in my back garden: It's not good enough, people dumping old cars on other people's patios....[!][8D] Joking apart, a sense of guilt at starting the new B Series Register just at the time that I'd got rid of my B, coupled with the cash for the said B sitting idly in the bank, led to a bit of an impulse purchase last Friday and it was delivered first thing today. It's the 1976 P reg 1600 auto that was on eBay for the last month as a classified ad. It seemed pretty good when I went to see it last week but it's a Manta so it will no doubt reveal some hidden "amusements" once I get to look at it properly. The chassis rails do need some work but I've seen much worse. Oh, and the head gasket has gone too (so it came somewhat cheaper than advertised) but I've already got a new gasket set for it. And I got home to find it's got a puncture too. If the delightful weather we're having abates tomorrow, I'll try to post some more photos then. Yes, this IS the car with '26 8 75' stamped on its l/h chassis rail so I will confess to a vested interest in finding out if any earlier ones are left. Cheers, Joe.
