Yep, I travelled a fair way for my current miggie and it was very worth it!  So I would travel anywhere for that 'right one' :y :y

For the right car, anywhere in the country.

My Omega's came from Sandhurst, Newbury, Swindon, Manchester, Dursley, Southend and Shawbury. I still have three of them but these are the final ones, hopefully keep going for a few years but goodness knows what'll replace them.

L˛oks good, never see them now.

For the right car i'd travel any distance as long as it is viable/economical.
I twice flew over to the UK to view E24 BMW's , both of which were criminally ill described.......
Bought mine in NI flying up to Dublin and the coach to seller . Bought it ,tore up my return air ticket and drove it 350 miles home.
Make a memory of the event.
Good luck.

I bought my Elite in Poole and drove it home to Cornwall (150 miles?)

I bought Mr Rog's MV6 Estate from James (and then accepted his generous offer to deliver it) - I should have travelled about 200 miles to collect it but James saved me the bother (and he collected it from Wales when he got it)
