I guy I used to work with has a nephew who has a Europa parked in a shed doing what cars do when they are parked up and left for a long time.  Despite knowing that the car is deteriorating, the nephew won't sell it to a good home.  The work numpty springs to mind.

In other news, I recently read that Gordon Murray how has a Europa and is enjoying it.
