I have been wanting a 4th generation shape now for quite some time. So when this one came up for sale in Birmingham I knew I would have it. In total it was a 10 hour round trip… Took us nearly 7 hours to reach Birmingham.

TIP:- Don’t attempt to drive up country on the last Friday of the summer holidays.

We finally arrived, and I took it for a test drive. It drove great for a little 1.4 auto. We exchanged money after an Alex inspection and headed home. I had my nerves about driving a car I had just bought (with a can of Easy start, already in the glove box) back the 3 hours it would take to get home. However it handled great, and got home without a hitch… be it nearly midnight on a worknight. I can’t thank Alex enough for going out of his way to take me up in the skid machine. (Still owe you a working hydro brake!)

Skip ahead a couple days after the purchase, The only work we’ve done on it. is changed over the wheels to the Jordans for the meantime, and changed the cassette deck out. Driving without spotify/IPOD was driving me crazy! I had plans to convert the tape deck into a AUX machine, but it’s been a pain in the A$$. So I took the easy option and took the working bluetooth/aux out of my EJ9.

I have a very… very… very long list of jobs to do on this car. However I can’t wait to start the journey and to be able to document the entire project from start to finish.
