Yes, this reminds me that I sold my trusty 408 FPF 678B to a dealer in Devon nearly 30 years ago and have lived to regret this quite a few times since. I once saw it looking rather more resplendent in St. Albans some years later and, annoyingly, I discovered a few months ago that I missed the chance to repurchase it as it had just been resold. I do have to admit that this time it looked in an even worse state than when I owned it.

I suppose this business is made of such memories. . .?
