V6 spotted in Coltishall garage. Early model looked in pretty good nick but the garage owner was rather grumpy... Not sure if it was one of Mathews maybe?

That was well spotted Richard and yes it is my car and I was just getting my new tow bar wired up!! The garage owner did mention someone had stopped and expressed interest and when I dropped off in the morning a neighbour crossed the road to chat and apparently also owned an early gold V6. The owner was a bit less grumpy later and it turned out he also once owned an XM!!

Glad to see your cars still around Mathew. Still using mine but not as often, awaiting new window regulators at the moment

We watched it too. A brief but great appearance!
Did like the DickS comment, along lines of 'Oh, not what I was expecting... I think I used to own most of those...'.
So, you survived the walrus moustache and the tasty breakfast!

How did the meeting come about, Matthew?
