      Well here goes. Lets' hope I don't bore the pants off everyone.

      The car was first registered on May 1st 1976 to a heating engineer in Wolverhampton, who later transferred to it to his wife in 1981. It was then sold in 1983 and stayed in Wolverhampton. Owner #4 was in Shrewsbury and the car had a full engine rebuild during early 1988 at a cost of £1430.44. My predecessor bought the car in 1990 and brought it up to Lancashire. He did a lot of work on it culminating in a full off road restoration which took 9 years to complete between 1995-2005. In 2015 it had more engine work including re-bore,new pistons,head rebuild and new timing chains/tensioners,new hood etc. Sadly John died in late 2016 having owned the car for almost 27 years. I'm owner #6 and have made a few cosmetic changes such as moto-lita steering wheel, some engine bling and changed to the old black/silver number plates. I see myself very much as a custodian and am benefitting from all John's hard work and considerable expenditure. I've managed to put together a fairly comprehensive history thanks to old receipts and notebooks that John had kept. He was a former regional co-ordinator so the car is quite well known in Lancashire stag circles.

      The cost of an engine rebuild wasn't cheap in 1988 at £1430 but it's a hell of a lot dearer nowadays

          That looks a beast of an engine. What's the brake horse power?

            Not sure if i should answer here due to rule number 3 but its only 180bhp atm it pulls well though due to more torque.

                      Nice looking car.

                      i can really relate to that heartfelt statement. Twenty two years ago I indulged myself and brought a Stag from a dealer in Manchester. Living in Sussex I took a flight from Gatwick Airport and then a taxi to the dealer. Once sorted all that remained was the 250 mile drive home. The weather was appalling and both the M6 and M5 were closed due to accidents so there was nothing for it but to cross the Peak District and pick up the M1.

                      Things were pretty uneventful until I took the slip road to join the M25 whereupon the temperature gauge went off the clock. Stags don’t tolerate overheating so I immediately stopped on the hard shoulder and called the AA and explained the issue and suggested they send a low loader to transport me home. Needless to say they didn’t heed my suggestion and after looking over my car and scratching their heads concluded that perhaps trailering it home was the best idea after all.

                      After a couple of hours the low loader arrived and transported me home. It was now nearing one o’clock in the morning and living in a quiet Cull-De-Sac I didn’t want to disturb the neighbours so thought it best to unload me 100 yds from home and I’d drive the remaining distance. So once off loaded I drove home and turned off the lights and engine and coasted up my drive.

                      i crept indoors quiet as a mouse so as not to wake the wife, (who I’d informed of my delay many hours before). Snuck upstairs in the dark and slipped into bed whereupon she said “You don’t listen to me do you”.

                      The next morning I phoned the Stag Owners Club technical officer for advice and was directed to remove the temperature sender unit plug and insert a paper clip and once done advise what the temperature gauge was doing. It went off the clock and he then told me the sender unit was defective and that the part was in stock and cost about £6. Relief !

                      Since then I’ve covered 37,000 miles and apart from regular servicing (and one water pump) she has run faultlessly and still brings a smile to my face each and every time I drive her.

                      So to answer your question yes I believe you have done the right thing and that you have many fun years ahead.
