So.... Me n Stewarty fancied a bit of this..

When this came up on eBay we couldn't resist, so Stewartys brother flew over yesterday and drove it 450 miles from Cardiff to Cairnryan... Luckily it's fitted with a 99 transit engine, never skipped a beat! Started unto it this eve and made great progress... Here she is as arrived... Gulp!
