i sold it in 2006 in prime condition...had 102 k on the clock when i sold it.
i fully restored the car,but it was a good car to start with.was only rusty round the petrol flap area,which i plate repaired(scary)

removed the self levelling suspension and did the timing chains and head gasket ,fitted new lamp modules and sorted the digi dash issues.

won many trophies and attended many jec shows on its then private reg number...

a bloke in blackpool bought it,,
then it vanished off the radar till i saw it in sheffield in spring 2013 looking really really sorry for itself.

the front bumper no longer had headlamp wash,the bonnet leaper had gone,but some of its little quirks remained..

shame such a lovely 40 had fell into bad hands and totally abused

met lucian once or twice,he had good plans for the car,but looking here it was a bit much for him

shame as it actually wasnt that bad,,,

oh well,,wonder who ended up with it??

ill try and find some old pics of it..

Right click on the little box then open in another tab ;)

Not keen on these things , i'd rather see the picture straight off , i don't really know anything about them but i suppose there's a reason for using them , maybe it's to enable you to put a post up without a , nope im confused :lol:

i lovingly restored that car,,it was proper mint

i knew,just knew the bloke who bought it was gonna neglect it...i could just tell

within weeks i was told he ripped the front bumper off,and his wife put a sledgehammer to the bonnet
