Notes: Bought from a garage in Leeds, West Yorks. I'd been after one for ages as I learned to drive in a Dolomite 1300 and lusted after a Sprint. Couldn't find one in Sheffield so travelled to Leeds for her.

Always had a problem with the overdrive switch on the gearstick, sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't. Once I remember smoke coming from the gearstick, the wires leading to the overdrive switch had bared, thought the vehicle was going to go up in smoke.

I sold her when I got engaged to my wife as I needed the money.
Hope she's still around and loved (the car that is, not the wife - I know where she is), WISH I'D STILL GOT HER NOW
Fate: I remember that I sold it to an Electrician that worked at Bassetts Sweets in Sheffield.
