Cheers all.
One life live it and all that.
Its nice to have options and I like the adventure of it.
Slowly selling things down here ready for going LHD.
Don't fancy shipping cars such a long way again so priority it my Tools.
Tickets booked coming home via visiting my twin bro in KL as not seen him in 5 years.
Going to have 3 months to catch our breath and do some visiting.
Will have to buy a car ;)
Kin'ell mate, that's not like you.. you could have sent her back over to France for 18 months or so to earn some cash, that way when you roll up 2 years later there a nice house and a couple of cars on the drive;)

You only get stitched once!

Would a self-teach Ling**phone course be of any interest?
Picked up the full blown "dum-fu*k to expert" course several years back.
Can't beat absorbing language from local life but it would be a good intro.
Could be of interest trying various Apps at the moment pm me details please.

Don't worry Dave I will always have more than 1 car and hopefully nice ones too.

That's the one I really would like to keep but I think it will be going to Australia mate.
A secondhand left hooker Peugeot awaits then :eek: first impressions will be, what the f*cks that! I did a five year stint in France, admittedly down the south next to the Italian border

It's a lovely country, not sure about the average Frenchie though, I think there still smarting from Agincourt :wink:

Things are happening quickly.
The Mini Clubman and all my collected spares sold.
Just watched my Daimler XJC drive off with it's new owner.
That's one car I have really enjoyed and will miss.
It will probably go up in value and out of my range to own again.
First viewer bought her.
Now just 3 more cars and my motorbike to go before October.

Any closer idea of what part of Northern France you are going to?

I take it I’m putting you down for Le Mans next year :)

Slowly settling into the French way.
Now to start the hunt for some R5 Gordini bits and pieces to make her a bit of Fun.
Glad I shipped my engine crane now in the container.
I saw a fast, or at least loud, R4 around Sittingbourne a few years ago. I thought it was uber cool.

This and a Saab 96 V4 are my two classic car wants (well obviously a R5 Turbo 2 and A110 too but prices are well out of reach these days).

Looking forward to seeing what you make of this.

I want to retain its charm along with carrying out the kind of mods that I feel appropriate.
She certainly won't be getting the Ali G Maxpower treatment trust me.
