    Welcome. There is a bit of info here.

    I'll give you the newbie Mark II speech.

    Buy a well-sorted restored car. Typically, and there are those here that back me up, buy the very best you can afford and enjoy driving it rather than buying a project car.

    However, if you have the skills to bring one of these back from the dead, have at it. There are a number of highly skilled restorers and mechanics here that check in regularly. All willing to help. We have certified mechanics and Mad Scientist, who implants modern technology into the inner working of cars where there are no parts, or they're made of unobtainium. There are literally dozens of cars in some stage of restoration for people to take detailed shots of normally hidden area, if you need them.

    This forum has proven highly helpful to Roger Zimmerman, a gentleman in Switzerland that is building a 1:12 scale model of a Mark II. If you want to see how they are built watch his thread from the beginning.

    This is the place to look for a car.

    Welcome.

    Welcome.
    I agree with Barry's advice to pay as much as you can for a Mark II in the first instance. In my decision I wanted someone else to pay the restoration costs to the point I could purchase. This will be the best advice you can have in the long term. The Mark II is a terrific car to own and drive and for those of you who appreciate a head turner, it is at the top. Guys in Roll Royce's will slow down and give you the thumbs up. It may be the car or perhaps a reminder of the times and when everything worked or a little of both. No matter the reason, it is fun.
