Third car was a 109 Long wheel base Land rover ( just passed my test ), it was known as the minibus, cause we used to go to Swindon ice skating all 10 of us :O


Forth car was a A plate mk 3 XR3i didn't have it long - Engine Fire. :nutter: should of checked the injection banjo nuts


Fifth car MK 3 XR3, Black and Abso Mint one owner from new Original throughout, i bought it from a chap who lived down the road from me. he recently moved in and had no garage to put it, i bought it for £200 no mot no tax. it passed the mot with no work needed. :thumb:
