This is a lovely car, its the same spec (GL, auto, single wiper) and colour as mine, although my version is a total dog with multiple issues and problems, and it's on an X plateRussGLAuto wrote: ↑Mon Jul 16, 2018 9:34 amHi all,
Firstly, great website, lots of useful info!
Just purchased what appears to sadly be a rare model, an 83 GL Auto. This was my first car back in 1990, although that was a Cosmos Blue example with reg JGE 600Y (Glasgow) which fell off the radar back in 1998. I had it for three years and had to sell as the insurance went through the roof... If anyone knows what happened to her let me know.
Regretted selling ever since and been looking for years for this or one like it, and finally found JWC 56Y a couple of months ago. She is in astonishing original condition, Diamond Silver with just 48k on the clock. Rust free all but for a few stone chips. Looks like the hidden bits have been rust protected all over too.
Immaculate inside and I dare say in better nick than the one I had in 1990. A few bits to attend to, but all in hand. Just had a full service and MOT. Eventually passed after a fog lamp and break balance sorted out.
Anyway, look forward to posting if I have any sticking points.
I hope to see this around one day as I'm over in Peterborough and occasionally venture over to Spalding.
