Trust Mehaul to provide you with such an informative and useful book.
The picture of the police car in the first illustration brought back some memories. In 1968, I bought one of those for £200 at an auction in Surrey. A test drive before bidding was not allowed. The auctioneer assured the bidders that the car was an ex-Buckinghamshire police car, so I assumed that it had been well maintained. I had seen similar vehicles performing well in Z-Cars.
By the time I had driven it two miles home it was a smoking ruin.
I took it back to the auction the next day and got £30 for it, which nearly paid for the tank full of petrol I had put in it before I had discovered what a wreck it was.

Skeeter, how did you remain calm during that process. 200 pounds in 1968 was a handsome amount. Mehaul
