37 years

Today was a good day, In 1983 the viva was layed to rest in garage as the owner die. I rescued the car 3 years ago , today the car drove by its own power up and down my drive its a great feeling to bring a car back from the dead as the engine was completely seized , I mean like 10 ton press to push the pistons out. I look forward to drive it on the road in the next few months. :D

It would be brilliant to see another lovely early Honey Starmist Viva SL back on the road - Just like my first car back in 1980! :D
