You’re missing the best bit of the B660-the bit from Kimbolton to Ramsey! The first part from Bedford to Kimbolton, while curvy, is festooned with villages and speed restrictions.

Sunday’s aren’t usually too bad for me, I’ll only be able to make some evenings as I work alternating early/late shifts.

Thanks
I pay about that for regular insurance, I ping pong between AA and Hastings alternate years.
Was hoping to find one with <5K mileage and still keep NCD for around £100.

It would be worth trying Footman James. I only pay £105 for a 214SLi that is unmodified.

You probably get it less than me as I'm in apparently in very high risk area (which is true but can't imagine anybody would steal the Rover), cars left on drive, no security and has mods

Cheers, I'll make enquiries, not due til July .. I have been thinking it would be nice to give her some TLC as I've done bangernomics for 10 years and I feel she needs repaying for being so reliable, unusually for a female! :laughing2

10 years motoring for £340... not bad.

I'd like to find other guys locally who have old cars and perhaps share a workshop similar to Men IN Sheds and help each other keep them on the road.

As numbers in owners clubs dwindle the HUBNUT approach seems to be the way forward, mixed marques all co-operating.. thoughts?
Cheers

I'm in Northampton (not far from Bedford) and would be interested in pooling resources. Maybe even join you in a meet up.
