Wow, that's so exciting and you're keeping it in the family which is really lovely. Are you trailering it back then, or will it fit in a big van? :idea: :D

yes it nice not to let it go to a stranger, the family has had it since 91! it took untill 2001 to restore, but that's Italy for you!

No it wont go in a van, believe me i have measured them all!!!

I am going to trailer it back. So a VW golf is good for.... 1 towing caravans and bringing me my car!lol :dancin:
