Got up early (4AM) to take the long drive down to the south coast to look at purchasing a classic 1960's Wolseley 1500 saloon car. We were held up in an 11 mile long traffic jam on the M-25 but finally reached our destination in Isfield, East Sussex The purchase did not go through but the owner had a lot of other interesting pre-war classics that he allowed us to see. We'll keep chasing classic cars until we find the right one to add to the collection!
