    Firstly, thanks to the admins for getting me logged in.

    So, I've been tempted to buy an E9 for a few years and finally took the plunge a couple of months back.

    There's not much for sale in the UK so i took a punt on a CSI in the Bonhams auction, here it is ...

    Currently it's a non-runner, as it's been off the road for around 20 years - first priority is to get it mobile, and I'll take it from there!

    Thanks - I'll get the camera out again tomorrow!

    I've been picking through the paperwork. I have the early service history and plenty of other documents to confirm the mileage of 85,000 or so. The car was an executors sale, the last, late owner bought in 1977, so it's only had two owners before me.

    I've not found anything that looks a major problem yet, probably the nastiest thing is the standard 4 spoke steering wheel, which looks like it should have been fitted to a Volvo!
