Hi everyone,congratulations on a superb forum.As I don't want to be a lurker let me introduce myself-English but lived and worked in spain for last 20 years,At present I don't own a british car but having been in the motor trade for over 35 years have owned and worked on many of the classics of nowadays,recently having restored all the mechanical side of an XK 150 DHC, same with lotus cortina,healey 3000,and triumph vitesse.As the saying goes -You never Stop Learning-and have learnt a few things from your forums,and hope in a humble way may be able to help others with some of the knowledge I have gained,or be able to give pointers as to where to find the info needed and visa versa.

Hi Mike from another expat - although I have been here so long I don't think I qualify any more. you live in a perfect climate for a nice MGB. Saw your list of cars _ I claim to have owned the only Mk1 4 door Lotus Cortina in existance. Long story. The Vitesse (6 Cylinder?) was quite quick.
