When I bought my Jaguar V12 the scrapyard extracted it with the use of gas torch! Lopped the car into two sections in front of the bulkhead.

Right, Jono, the usual care and attention to detail from a scrap yard. (Which do you think did in most classics; scrapyards or banger racing?)

 

It is a very big lump. Now, I understand why there aren't twin overhead-camshafts: it would have made the whole unit too large for a front engined car!

87,000 pounds! What is this going to compete with a Porsche?

Thank you, Jono, that is the best clip I have seen in ages.

So much information and soooo much expense I saved in not buying one! This one was clearly well looked after but the documentation was not complete: who did put in the rally cams.

The chances are they were never disclosed for insurance purposes and 'forgotten' when it came time to sell it.

Thank you, Jono.

 

I love the little Alfa Coup├ęs! He is right to to like these cars.

 

They are brilliant to drive, if you like your knees around your ears! (Very funny driving position!)

Thank you, Jono. That was a very interesting 'Harry's Garage' clip.

 

I wasn't aware that paint technology had moved on so far!

Thank you, Jono.

 

Why couldn't he just keep the car's original colour... or the blue it looked good in? No it will look like a pimpmobile.

 

The level of decay in the body work was a big shock. I am now really impressed with how well Abingdon MGs age! (I used to think MGBs were total rust buckets!)
