A little about me

I started my Classic Car interest when I built up a Nova car in 1983 when I lived in Durban. from there I have had many cars, predominantly British, but I cannot exclude my love of Citroens having owned a DS19, a Ds21, A CX2400 and the ultimate car, the Citroen SM. I have owned many MGs and two Lotus Super 7s but my present love is the Lotus Esprit Turbo car of the 1980s and also the 2+2 Lotus Excel SE
