I recently attended an Aston Martin event in Sydney and spoke at length to the owner (Peter) of a fully restored 1981 Lagonda which was just immaculate. Peter said he found the car sitting in an open carport at a house facing onto Sydney Harbour where the Lagonda had been sitting unused for some years.....so you can imagine some of the issues that came with the purchase of the Lagaonda. Suffice to say that Peter has spent a lot of money restoring it......even sent the dash back to AM in the UK for repair !!! There is an interview of Peter with his Lagonda on a Aussie website called CarsofAustralia.com.au. This is the link to the interview: www.carsofaustralia.com.au/downloads_and_fun.php?cat=5
Hope you enjoy his owner interview....it is very informative.
