Now that is a proper shooting break. Not sure about the sunroof but probably makes it better for shooting tigers.

That is one impressive motor!

Will it keep up with modern traffic or will you have to put a Golf drivetrain in it though?

.Apparently the chap who had it done up had the sunroof fitted as he intended to use it to shoot from. Unfortunately on the first outing he got the car stuck on a track. The people he was shooting with laughed at him so the car was towed out, taken back home and put in his grain store for years. He never drove it again. The chap I bought it from acquired it from the estate, the owner refused to speak to him about it, all he got was a receipt and the V5. No idea who did the work, but the interior is new, the wood is like new, luckily a few storage scuffs on the outside or I'd be scared to use it.

Not sure if it will keep up with the traffic, but if not they'll just have to wait.

I was amused to find The Sweeney in CVS.

Didn't look to see who made it. Maybe, it had opening bits and was nicely detailed.
