Hello! (To anyone who may see this)

I'm a bit belated with this but MAAF came to me in May. He's got some daily duties and is very much a rolling resto - he just passed his MOT, so lives to fight another year at least.

At some point I'll start a separate thread about him but thought for the meantime I'd just add to this to say that he is safe and well!

He periodically pops up on my Instagram, if you want to stalk for wedge goodness @__emmmaaaaa
Yay! Finally you're here.... :D

If anyone is curious/reading this, the car is for sale now purely because I do not have the time for it and the car is wasted with me :(

I will do a proper post here ASAP but for now here is the Facebook listing: ... 703827084/

I'm very open to discussion on price.
