She's Home!

Post by guru » Sat Mar 24, 2018 2:25 pm

After what seemed like an eternity she's finally home! We actually moved 2 years ago whilst the Sterling was in storage so this is the first time she's been sat in the drive.

Mechanically she runs and drives now (and is taxed, insured and MOT'd) but there are still some issues however I think I'm going to focus on the bodywork before she goes back to have the last few mechanical bits sorted. Besides the obvious buts of corrosion I think she's actually come through her 6 years off the road pretty well, really enjoying being back behind the wheel again :D

Sad thing. My pics were used aswell in a Portugese advert.

But still, lovely car! It would be really nice to have a mint mk1 like this!
