My Dad had a 1969 P5B from nearly new. After the gearbox had packed up for about the third time he dumped it in the garage and after a succession of other cars he decided to get it back on the road rather than let it deteriorate. At the time he was driving a newish XJ and comparing the two he decided to stick with Jag .... more comfortable and more predictable ... altogether a nicer drive. In fact, my Ford Focus is a nicer drive. He said I could have the P5B for nothing but I hated the way it drove and road feel was practically nil. I hated the typically tacky Rover dash (an afterthought plonked on top) and the seats weren't comfortable. I stuck it on eBay and gave him the money.
Like all classic cars, they are nicer to look at than drive. Anyway, you can't get windscreens for P5's any more, so crack one and you'll need to source a second hand one.
i wont write my opinion on le Cam for 2 reasons , firstly its incredibly rude to diss any woman in writing and secondly Charles"s Duchy office will have already read this thread and i dont want them targetting metupperware harty wrote:jonnyald wrote:would it leap away like a scalded cat? or might it bog down with a terrible burning smell from the box ?
