    Thanks for the great pictures, for some reason I never took any. That is my TVR.

    I love that orange Europa. Always regret selling mine but actually replaced it with that Land Rover 109 you took a picture of.

    Re: Today's chores

    David beat me to it. My 1977 TVR has all black wiring and the coloured collars are long gone. It went from a couple beers kind of job to a few gin and tonics.

    Re: Citroen DS

    JP, I remember your DS driving around Belleville about 1979 or so. Wasn't there also a late fifties Audi. I had a spitfire, a TR6 and 63 VW pickup back then. DS's are very cool cars.
