reluctantly parted with the car due to failing eyesight. The car has

mainly for RREC club meets, the car being photographed at Harewood House.
The car drives very sweetly indeed and everything works exactly as it
should, a total joy to be behind the wheel. The paintwork also impresses,

major blemish, this really is a most eye catching vehicle.
