I was after a good XJ40
That was a long search.

Lacking the class of a Marina? Probably a Hyundai Genesis.

Well, tomorrow is nearly here. What time can we expect an update? Shall we say full picture-report by midday?

Arguably I've bought what was Britain's most reliable domestic car. Its also disarmingly elegant.

That will be an Austin Westminster A110 Deluxe. If it's not you're either misguided or lying.

Great. Pics of a John O’Gaunt 4hp for breakfast tomorrow. Or maybe a Cubitt K4. Very reliable British motors.

Having a car delivered is not really buying a car, strictly speaking.
