Hi All,

I'm having a mid life :shock: and brought a sprint that needs more attention than I have the time or skills for but I'm desperate to drive it as a usable classic. Can anyone recommend a fair priced, reliable garage in Sussex? I'm based near Worthing, West Sussex.

I have taken a video of my new baby...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQ6WrPaYBls&t=14s

Many thanks

Welcome to the forum. :D
On the surface it doesn't seem too bad at all, but as ever it's what lies beneath. Does the engine run, how's the gearbox, a few more lingering shots of the interior would be appreciated, and again, welcome. :D

That is the previously Brian Kitley prepared car isn't it, sold on ebay a month or so ago?

In my opinion, you have a bargain and are in good hands with Derek.
