A good friend of mine purchased ‘TaNK' as she is known back in early 2000's and ran it as a weekend car. He changed jobs in 2005, had to move abroad and asked if he could store it in a barn I have whilst he was ‘away'. Fast forward 12 or so years and Tank was not likely to go anywhere soon so I offered to buy it and take on as a winter project.


Over the next 18months it was stripped, sand blasted welded and re sprayed and brought into service again as a daily driver used a teacher friend of mine covering on average 8,000miles a year. Over that time it was well looked after with 3 monthly oil changes and a full service each Christmas with any issues arising (it is a classic after all) dealt with. Due to a job change and an upspec in car it is now surplus to his requirements and it is time to thin my stables. In the last month it has had a light refresh with some cosmetic work carried out and replacement bushes and the like so that it is now back to the same condition it was when the refurbishment was completed, maybe even better. It is a great car to drive and with the upgrades below it really is a daily driver.
