Re: The return of my Morris!! Hopefully?!

Good advice Roy but id say never do a 50/50 partnership, I have seen this many times in many car clubs with various owners and cars and it never works![/quote]

I share my 53 convertable with my 72 year old dad.....I payed for it,maintain it,insure it ...he drives and polishes it :lol:
