Yeah. Now working again after much tender loving car from at Tony Weston's garage which is located in Cambridge Mills (which is about 200 miles from Cambridge!). Sill Welding, Exhaust welding, New catalytic converter, new suspension rear pipe etc.
If it was anything other than the V6 I would have thought twice, but even at 20 years old the car still rockets away.
I tend to use my XMs every day, added another 1000 miles or so this month.-
It won't win any prizes for looks though, too many dents and rust!
Thanks for the shout out! Steve.

Hi Steve,

Do add the car to the Members' Cars list, here: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=7089#p81829.
Just put the details into a post at the end of the thread - Matthew then adds then to the list, in RP order.
