    Na, for what we would get for it we would never get another without spending a load more cash and to be honest she don't need anything better as she uses it so little. Also on a different car it may come with issues/problems. This seems to be trouble free. Plus it costs peanuts to run. Insurance for us both : £109 MOT : £25 Tax: £155 I change the oil myself now every couple of years and I've not had to spend a penny on repairs for a long while.

    Pretty much trouble free motoring then I'd definitely hang on to it, could be worth some money in years to come.

    But it's only an average Tony, there are plenty of blokes who are 5' nothing and plenty who are over 6' in height. I believe the smaller doors were due to floor levels when the properties were built rather than the occupants height.

    Horror of the week 21/02/19

    Terminal really. I could almost understand this on some after market wheels but not OEM Aston rims.

    Rear silencer rusted due to condensation build up, a few batteries and Two rear wheel cylinders as the rubber perished and they leaked. Most of that is down to the lack of use tho.

    Yes but you're talking an inch or two, nothing drastic.

    Apparently we are taller.
  17. I've seen many cracked wheels in my days but this one is different. As you can see the spoke has cracked due to incorrect casting? There's no evidence of impact and since it's off an Aston Martin i doubt it's been ragged.

    The small cottage gives the impression the door is small but it's probably average size. I don't think humans are that much taller than 200 years a go!

    Long term maintenance

    I didn't notice that but it makes sense.

    New services...

    Exactly what's involved i don't know. That would be down to the training, in addition cost will reflect how long it takes to do?

    Excellent. Being a Ford I'm amazed it doesn't need more maintenance to keep it going. What have you replaced since you've had it?
