Steve Holden: Holiday breakfasts at Little Chef and Mum's XR3i Cabriolet Christmas present! S3E8

Andy and Jon are joined by Steve Holden, a friend of Andy's whom he knows through classic VW ownership.
The discussion kicks off with Steve's Mum's Datsun Cherry Coupe, before talk turns to a Morris Marina Van, and a love in for the Renault 9 - which led Steve to buy a Renualt 19 later in life.
Steve's Dad surprised his mum with an Escort XR3i Cabriolet one Christmas, he'd hidden it in the garage the week before, but the marks on the grass almost gave the game away.
Being a hands on Dad (having built his own house) there was a Dumper Truck in the garden that Steve learnt to drive in. His Dad would also help with mechanical repairs, lowering modifications and even a full engine swap on an aging Rover.
Another great episode which really captures the magic of the subject.
