Evenin' Peeps :D Hope you're not too snowy.

I might travel down soon to view/buy a car from KH Cars at Long Sutton.

Anyone know of them and advise whether they have a good reputation?

Also - can any of you advise the best method of travel from Stanstead to Long Sutton?

Looking at map suggest train maybe from Stanstead to Kings Lynn - is there a better way? Have used Stanstead a lot but always going into London, can't recall if the train runs direct from there northwards :roll:

cheers guys

Iain

.....more a melting pot of 60s/70s/80s/90s/neu millenium gadgetry :P

We still have Mrs Panda's original "portable" computer (cf laptop) - its approx 2ft x 2ft x1ft and weighs the same as a small bison. Think of the original Brick Stylee mobile phones and multipy x1000 :lol:

Good motor in its day. I started a new job in Sussex in 1988 and had choice of escort or astra as co car. The director asked me if i wanted a TURBO :P

WHAT? i asked unbelievingly, then the accent difference recognition software kicked in as i realised he's said TOWBAR :(

pish.
