Greetings all. I have owned a couple of 340's and a 360 since 1997 with a preference for late models. I try to record my progress, or lack thereof, at this link:

http://www.jbc.me.uk

Here is a picture of me from 2003 when I had more hair (!) and when, being easily-led, it suddenly made sense to cosmetically 'upgrade' someone else's car of similar vintage:

The following year I made the dubious decision to make 340 and 360 maintenance my main pastime by taking on restoration of a 360 and that situation hasn't really changed since.

Anyhow, there's a prize if you can recognise the true make of that car in the photo.
1988 340 1.4 GL, 218k, 5 door (Grey Bess). Gone to CBA.
1991 340 1.7 GL, 64k, 5 door, petrol blue (Deep Blue).
1988 360 2.0 GLE, 140k, 5 door, ocean blue metallic (Blue Bess).
1989 340 1.7 GL, 108k, 3 door (Red Ness).

I'm minded to say that's a Zastava Yugo.

Give that Farrell a coconut. He's no genius. I've a sneaky suspicion that he has a penchant for autoshite!

I don't know what Mark's on. sm34 :D
