My god....i remember the days when my local scrapyards had that many Vivas in it...i used to go there and pick sets of Rostyle wheels out of a huge pile for £2 a wheel...AND they would take the tyres off for you!

Blimey, at this rate I'm emigrating! Got rellies in Palmerston North, so might nag them to look for bits for me..... Never thought of that before. Containers not that expensive either.

pH..its the 150 year old lady who lives on my street..and she only pulls it out of the garage once a week..so its a rather elusive machine..il go talk to the vintage car club guys and see if theres any others..i live beside their storage/surplus collection..about 70 cars in there..might still be some tatty HAs in there..
