Hello, and thanks for evryones interest and comments about my little Imp !
We (well Steve my husband) has spent this weekend going over it, he's had all the wheels off, checked the brakes, serviced the engine, and took all the carpets out - apparently looking for rust - but he couldn't find any! My six year old son was "helping" which was nice.
The car Is apparently a mark 1 , and has only had 3 owners in its life before me, the first lady kept it until 1978, then the second, again a lady until 1998, and then the guy we bought it from who had done some slight renovations, but for a 45 year old car it really is amazing. Steve doesn't have a classic car, he has a company Mondeo, but until he got that he had a 1600E cortina, it was a great car but not as nice as my Singer!
The choke is between the seats and yes I am remembering to pull it up, I am struggling to know when to push it in though, when I think it's ok I push it but then sometimes it will stall when I stop, I'm sure I will get used to it though.
I love driving a classic car, it's amazing how people turn and look as you pass, or come up and talk about it in the car park, I love it!
