if it was "w" reg it could be possibly one of my previous c's, I would be pleased if it is because the last I heard it had a disagreement with a modern and needed a bit of work.

I will be back there next week .the car park is a long stay place which workers use .I will leave a note on the car .it made sitting in the council office more pleasurable after seeing the car .

Hello, this is my GTC. A little dirty as you may have noticed. This was Geraints old one from about 5 years ago. It has taken a rear smash a couple of years back but fully repaired. I had an elderly gentleman try to push it up the road whilst it was parked so I have had the whole front end xrayed and sorted. Only need some one to scratch both doors and the car would had a total refurb on the paint. Lol

Hello, yes I am from the Medway area and the GTC is my loved main mode of transport apart from my Vespa scooters. I haven't seen another scimitar about in the medway towns for a very long time??

You didn't spot my SS1 in Chatham last Christmas (2014/15)? Mind you, that's nothing to be ashamed of, as I didn't spot your GTC either! :) It was only a brief 1 week visit though.
