The absolute best restoration / interior.

One of the McLaren guys should buy it. If I remember correctly the car is in the same town, Woking, Surrey.

Josh, cool, lend me the money. I'd have to do quality assurance checks before I send it over though.

It wouldn't be much of a present if I paid for it, now would it
