Visiting England this weekend on the way to Munich. Stopped off at Paul Matty's to buy a ton of parts & oggle the great cars that he currently has in stock (in 26R-S1-4x) & 2 Appendix Ks, then up to QED in Quorn.

Saw a nice +2 just before Loughborough, & then followed this nice yellow S4 DHC:

The car pulled into Loughborough Uni, anyone here?

On Saturday went to Sherwood restorations in Southwell, who currently have a nice DHC Sprint converted into a FHC (swimming against the tide...)

Phil- A ton of parts on your sprint is going to slow her down a tad. :D

I think he meant while you are carrying the spares, to where you will fit them. :)

No, I was just being a smart ass. :lol: I knew he wouldn't be hauling the spares in the sprint. He wouldn't want to get it wet on the way back home!
