john a milne I read that after his death his MK11 was fully restored and sold at auction for over 100,000 lbs.
There are a few companies in England that to a complete restoration and sell them for about us $75.000.

Aditya Beautiful car indeed! A classic I'd love to own someday. 20th March 2009
john a milne We haven't driven it too much this last year, been busy with other things and have been doing a lot of traveling. We don't drive it much in the winter because of the snow and salt on the roads, and not having an A/C not a lot of summer driving.

Having said that we have done a few day runs averaging over 500 miles. With only 58,000 miles on it and well maintained it is a very dependable car.

It has been a privilege to have had it for such a long time.

john a milne While we haven't driven it that much recently, during our 2002 quest for the JCNA big trophy and the year prior to that, we drove to the various concours, Detroit 250 miles, Pittsburgh Penn. 290 miles, Cleveland Ohio 280 miles, and Columbus Ohio slightly over 300 miles, one way. Left on a Friday and then got up very early on Saturday morning, washed and re detailed it for Judging that usually started around 11 am. with the awards dinner that night and back on the Sunday . The most interesting Concours was in Cleveland where the JCNA event was tied into a weekend "car feast" with over 2,000 cars new and old. remember an older VW Beetle out fitted with a camper tent on the top. The most memorable trips was to Pittsburgh when on the way back it was overheating, so I stopped, removed the hood and tied it into the trunk, solved the problem, we went through two monsoon like thunderstorms which flooded out the engine for a while. The other our first US concours trip to Cleveland in 1981, as w 18th February 2009
aah78 What a beautiful car! Is she only brought out on special occasions or does she fare well as a daily driver too? 18th February 2009
