The 71 BGT got jealous and came up with its own charging problem too. Basically it just isn't charging. As this car is my daily driver and it has a couple of other small issues that could do with being dealt with I decided to bring the 75 GT out of hibernation to stand in as my daily driver.
After as sharp pain in the wallet, paying for insurance & tax, The 75 saw the road for the first time in about 10 months. It started up straight away and drives like a dream. It will get its first cub run on Sunday.
