Re: pride of longbridge 2016

What a shame. The British Spring weather meant we couldnt use the park, so the event took place on the streets outside, reminiscent of a 1990's car cruise. Ahhh my youth! I got there about 10am and stayed till around 1pm, then made the long trek back south again. All the time i was there it was sunn...

Re: 1991 827 SI saloon J543 S0A

He was actually impressed by the smooth ride, the smooth gearbox, the great engine sound and the fact that there are no rattles or worrying noises. Pretty unbelievable for a 25 year old car. Plus it actually receive...

Re: 1991 827 SI saloon J543 S0A

I bought this car! Picked it up from Billericay Essex last night and drove it 50 miles home. Goes brilliantly. Well impressed. The bodywork lets it down, but the seats are spotless. Ill be taking it to the Pride of Longbridge this Saturday.
