This is a bit off the beaten track; it's towards the Roman harbour off the Wye Valley Walk. There's a path marked on a OS map, but there's no path there in reality. Saw a few deer but they were too quick for me to photograph. We've some magic forests around here.

What you describe however is what happened to both my Monza 3ltrs..one repaired , one scrapped.
All 5's ever made have "all round" coil-over adjustable wishbones. Without going anorak on you, 5's are famous for 1 major party piece...handling as the chassis is adjustable for track and road. Not a lot of power mind, but come the twisties like you have in your locale, bags of fun through sheer mechanical grip & handling. Brakes? Pah..just steer.
Even my old slapper makes a decent track fun toy.
Or it did make..till I spent (£££ cough) restoring it as well
