Spotted a G reg 820, in red ending in vae, parked up in Palm Bay.

First 800 I've seen in a while!

Hi Dave, maybe a little late at spotting this. I'm still around. Sold the Accord on last December so got a good few years out of that one, ended up going through 2 Peugeots for the first half of this year then onto an S-Type. Think I'm done with Peugeot for this lifetime :D

Good to hear from you JIm! Hope you and your family are all well?

Peugeots are best avoided in my experience, they should carry a government health warning IMHO! :lol:

The Jag should be a lot better than those Pugs at least! :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

We're all good, how you and the fleet are holding up well? The first Peugeot wasn't too bad, but a couple of months after I bought it it was written off while parked outside the house. It was very basic and under-powered, but felt quite nice to drive and was immaculate, when it was written off I bought another with the insurance money which never felt right, so a few months later I sold it at a loss to return to British cars :D

Here's in memory to the first Peugeot (damage was worse than it looks and it was parked on the road before it was hit, that's just where it landed :shock: )

Although Ford designed, at least the S-Type was built in the UK, it's an awesome car but I still look up at the photo of my old 800 mounted in the living rooml and want it back :'(

Aside from the usual health problems, i'm fine thanks Jim. The fleet is holding up pretty well too thanks except the Sterling has popped its radiator! :shock: :(

The Coupé is running nicely on LPG (or would be if anywhere round here had any LPG to put in it! It's like a black hole round here just now!) and the Volvo i think you saw (blue 740GLE) has been upgraded for a 760GLE V6 via a 4.0 Jeep Cherokee.

That's a nice looking Jag you have there (best colour too! :wink: ), sort of surprised you're looking to swap it for an 800 but they do get under your skin! :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave
