    Been quite happy with my 2.5 manual and all going pretty well lately. However, think I have just done a deal on a 4.6 Vogue, for no other reason than it was cheap..and shiny.
    Hasn't been used for a year and owner just parked it up and now wants rid, so now mine..!
    Picking up at weekend, (trailered) and looking at a lot of work no doubt, but project for the next year.
    I will post here as it goes on and..see you all in the asylum..

    Last V8 I had, had a spare wheel on the boot lid and was called a P6.

    That's the one, not many people realised you could unscrew the boot badge and the spare fitted straight on..oh and it had carburettors.

    I'll get some pics at the weekend, colour is Oxford Blue, cream leather and I think, Hurricane wheels. Gas conversion, which will be a mystery to me.

    You will need the derv to tow the V8 steam-engine around from time to time ;)

    Good. That'll give you some practice at head gaskets.

    You'll need fresh petrol if it has been sat for a year.

    Thanks Mr Datatek, I knew I could rely on you to spot that one, I will be coming to you no doubt with all those bizarre lectric gremlins on this one. The DSE was relatively straightforward. Don't feel I will be so lucky this time..:):)
